The Progress Party (FRP) reached an agreement with the Norwegian government and thus secured a parliamentary majority for the revised budget. 

In recent weeks, the FRP and the government have been negotiating an agreement on a revised budget. The agreement was presented at a press conference outside the Norwegian parliament (Storting) on Sunday afternoon.

“We have secured an agreement that gives the Progress Party good results,” FRP’s Hans Andreas Limi noted.

The FRP states that in addition to tax cuts, they managed to double the allocation for medicines for mental health care. In addition, the party has agreed with the government to reduce ferry prices by 25%.

“This means that people will really notice it when it comes to ticket prices,” FRP’s Bård Hoksrud said.
