Norway's center-left heads to victory in general elections

Source: ABC News

COPENHAGEN, Denmark -- The center-left bloc headed to a victory in Norway's elections Monday as official projections pointed to the governing Conservatives losing power after a campaign dominated by climate change and the future of the country’s oil and gas exploration industry.

With a projection based on a preliminary count of nearly 93% of the votes, the Labor Party and its two allies — the Socialist Left and the euroskeptic Center Party — would hold 100 seats in the 169-seat Stortinget assembly while the current government would get 68. One seat was still unsure.

As Norway’s largest party, Labor will try to form a coalition government and its chief, 61-year-old Jonas Gahr Stoere, is poised to become Norway’s next leader. The Scandinavian country is not a member of the European Union.

Labor has promised an industrial policy that will funnel support to new green industries, like wind power, “blue hydrogen” that uses natural gas to produce an alternative fuel, and carbon capture and storage, which seeks to bury carbon dioxide under the ocean.

3. Very cool!

And it appears that in the German elections, Olaf Scholz and the Social Democrats are poised to win in a couple weeks. It's at least theirs to lose.

Perhaps the pendulum is swinging back toward liberalism after years of a conservative trend in Europe (from center-right governments to the resurgence of ultra-right neo-Nazi movements).

5. It would be sweet if liberals win worldwide

since we can see blatant difference in COVID responses/outcomes. Countries with conservative leadership have more COVID cases often spread around by their own supporters.
