As the election forecast predicts a red-green government, Jonas Gahr Støre (Ap) and the rest of the Labor Party have reason to celebrate.

The tension was through the roof Monday evening as the Norwegian population was waiting for the election forecast to come in at 9 PM. The Labor Party and its leader Jonas Gahr Støre can now celebrate what looks like it could be a red-green government.

The forecast shows that the Labor Party’s support is far higher than the polls indicated before the elections. With a support of 26.5%, the Labor Party is the country’s largest party by a good margin, and party leader Jonas Gahr Støre is now very well placed to become the country’s next prime minister.

See how members of the Labor Party reacted to the news:
