The Progress Party’s (FRP) Marius Arion Nilsen believes Prime Minister Støre is making vague promises in his statements about the electricity crisis.
Jonas Gahr Støre (AP) told NTB during the weekend that the electricity crisis could last for many years and that people must take its seriousness into account.
“It is good that they finally see the seriousness and are starting to come up with measures. But there are only vague words and vague promises. When Støre himself says that the electricity price crisis could last for several years, the underlying problems must be addressed,” Nilsen said.
Nilsen is on the Energy and Environment Committee in the Norwegian parliament (Storting) for the FRP. He is now asking the government to take action, slow down power exports, and help those who struggle with high electricity bills in Norway.
“We have become closely associated with a dysfunctional European power market and do not have a government that fights for Norwegian electricity customers,” Nilsen noted.
