Norway will hold local election on Monday, 11 September 2023. Current polling shows that the Conservative Party (HÝyre) is leading the Labour Party (Arbeiderpartiet), although the margin seems to be narrowing a bit as election day approaches. Latest poll:



If the Conservatives poll ahead of Labour, this would be the first time in almost 100 years that Labour is not the 1st party in a Norwegian election. What kind of impact could this have on the current Labour government?

RIP Ap's first place position: 1927 - 2023. Almost made it 100 years, though polling since 2022 suggesting it would happen and not by a small margin.

If the exit polls are correct then this could easily have been a lot worse.

Combined right bloc is projected to be at 42-45% of the vote which is on the lower end of polling average.

Well, the last combined polling average of H+FrP+KRP+V had them at 46.5%. The projected results gives them 46%.

Not sure. In Wikipedia, their description is that they are a Isolationist party and that they see themselves as from the center-left to the rightwing. A bit syncretic.

Of the Nordic countries, only Sweden has now a dominant Social Democratic Party.

In the end the Conservatives outperformed the exits, but not to the extent of their present national election polling. Ap and Centre (Sp) outperformed in comparison to said polling. Not that unsurprising since the two control many rural areas where connections and grassroots loyalty are harder to break in local contests.

Compared to the national election polling, the main Conservative party was the big underperformer. The radical left SV and R though also notably underperformed Compared to their smaller polling percentages.

The Norwegian governments is generally doing very poorly in the polls at the moment, the Labour Party in particular.

Any reason for that??

I have generally been confused by that for a while,  but the main response I got last time I asked was just the invasion of Ukraine.  That resulted in energy price hikes, which is when the Conservatives started surging in the polls. It seems too simple,  but I guess said prices matter even more than usual in a country where heating is necessary almost year-round.

I also think there have been a lot of scandals involving the government, especially an expenses scandal that broke in November 2021, just weeks after the swearing in of the new Red-Green government, and since then the Conservatives have been leading in the polls. Of course, scandals added with a cost of living crisis are a powerful cocktail for any government.

How popular is Jonas Gahr StÝre personally?? How do people see him compared to his predecessor (and maybe successor) Erna Solberg??
