The Green Party (MDG) is making the stop of oil exploration in Norway its absolute requirement when it comes to supporting a future government. The elections take place on September 13.
Party leader Une Bastholm announced the news during the MDG’s election campaign start in Oslo on Tuesday.
At the election campaign opening, the MDG presented a new crisis package for the climate with 15 measures the party wants to implement to address the new report from the UN Climate Panel (IPCC).
The MDG has gained over 750 new members since the report was presented on Monday.
The MDG is asking for emissions to be cut by 80% by 2030 and oil exploration to stop immediately.
