Listhaug: – Feels like we escaped from prison

FrP Deputy Leader Sylvi Listhaug says she is looking forward to running with pure FrP policy at the Storting.

“We will drive FrP policies forward, and I think everyone is looking forward to that now. We feel we have escaped from prison after lots of unsatisfactory compromises, which has created greater and greater frustration in the party,” Listhaug tells TV 2.

FrP left the government this week after it became clear that Norway brought home the IS-accused woman from Syria and her sick children. The decision disappointed Listhaug.

“Høyre had been pretty adamant not to bring them home, and then they turned around completely, and it was a shame,” she says.

“But now we are going to run opposition politics, which is something FrP has done for 40 years, and I look forward to highlighting what FrP’s policy really is.”

Listhaug resigned as Minister of Petroleum and Energy and was replaced by Høyre’s Tina Bru.
