The Red-Green Coalition, formed by the Labour, the Socialist Left Party (SV), and the Centre Party, established in 2005 to constitute a alternative to the centre-right government of Kjell Magne Bondevik, won the Norwegian parliamentary election.

The results showed a continued majority for the governing Red-Green Coalition, which is expected to allow Jens Stoltenberg to continue as prime minister.

On the non-socialist side, both the Conservative Party and Progress Party posted gains from 2005. The centrist Liberal Party failed to meet the electoral threshold at 4.0%, and were reduced to two representatives.
