A new coalition Government between the Conservative Party (H) and the Progress Party (FrP), with Erna Solberg as Prime Minister, was appointed by His Majesty The King on Wednesday 16th October. The Government is due to put forward its programme declaration in a sitting of the Storting at 12.00 on Friday 18th October.
The Constitution, as laid down on 17 May 1814 by the Constituent Assembly at Eidsvoll and subsequently amended.
“This year’s Nobel Peace Prize, awarded to the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), goes directly to the heart of a conflict the world community is deeply concerned about,” says President of the Storting Olemic Thommessen.
His Majesty the King normally performs the State Opening of the Storting on the first weekday after the Storting has constituted itself. This year the State Opening will take place on Wednesday 9 October.
The elections to the Storting and the Sami Assembly were held on Monday 9th September. The State Opening of the 158th Storting will take place on Wednesday 9th October. What happens when a new Storting convenes?
In 2014 it will be 200 years since the Norwegian Constitution was signed at Eidsvoll. Numerous events will take place around the country with the objective of enhancing knowledge about the Constitution, and highlighting its historical and contemporary significance.
On 11th June 2013 it will be exactly 100 years since women were granted the right to vote, almost a century after men received the same rights. The centenary committee, which has met regularly since early 2010, is responsible for the Government’s official centenary celebration programme.
