Abdullah Alsabeehg has been elected deputy mayor of the Oslo Labor Party. Thus, men hold all of the five top positions.

“It is strange that the Oslo Labor Party does not have a place for a single woman in one of these positions,” Hanne Størset, the leader in Kvinnegruppa Ottar, told the newspaper Vårt Oslo.

In addition to the new deputy mayor, the other top positions are county party leader Frode Jacobsen, county party secretary Øyvind Slåke, group leader Andreas Haise, and City Council leader Raymond Johansen.

The party’s articles of association state that all positions, committees, and appointments should have 50% representation of both sexes. County party secretary Øyvind Slåke believes that the party’s articles of association have been followed.
