The Labor Party (AP) and the Center Party (SP) will enter formal government negotiations. The decision was made after the Socialist Left Party (SV) withdrew from the preliminary talks.

“We agree to start the negotiations to form a government together. We already got off to a good start during the preparation of the negotiations, choosing topics, and distributing tasks,” AP leader Jonas Gahr Støre said during a press conference at Hurdalsjøen hotel on Wednesday night.

Thus, everything is in place for Norway to get a minority government led by Jonas Gahr Støre, which consists of the AP and the SP. The SV withdrew from the talks earlier on Wednesday.

“We in the Center Party are ready to have a good work session with the Labor Party and create a government platform,” SP leader Trygve Slagsvold Vedum said.

“It will be a Labor-led government,” Støre added.
