Four out of ten members of the Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions (LO) voted for the Labor Party (AP) in the election, Frifagbevegelse reports. At the beginning of the election campaign, the party had around 30% of support in the trade union movement.
There is also a 2% increase in support among LO members compared to the election four years ago, reports Frifagbevegelse, which gained access to the Labor Party’s internal analysis figures.
The figures also highlight the party’s rise in Northern Norway. The party aimed to take back this region after a weak election result in 2017. The result was an increase of 2.8% in Nordland, 3.1% in Troms, and 0.5% in Finnmark.
“We ran a good election campaign and got our message out to the voters,” Labor Party (AP) leader Jonas Gahr Støre told FriFagbevegelse.
