Norway’s government is re-elected
Parliamentary elections were held in Norway on 14 September 2009. Early voting was possible between 10 August through 12 September 2009, while some municipalities held open voting on 13 September.
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.
