A Peek Into Several European Countries
By: Jordan Locke
The Progress Party is showing progress getting a majority in parliament.
This Party’s platform mainly focuses on anti-immigration. Though they also focus on privatizing hospitals and schools and cutting taxes. There was a back lash against the party because Anders Behring Breivik who massacred 77 people was once among its members. But now this conservative party looks like it will have the majority in parliament.
Just two years after this massacre, the Norwegians have ousted their center-left government. The Labor party in party would of wanted to extend welfare to help those in need but the conservatives won with “more democracy.”
Immigration has always been a problem with Sweden and Norway. These two countries always seem to set an example for acceptance but will falter when it comes to this issue. Now it has made Norway completely change the political party in power. This will be the first conservative party in power in 1990.
