Norway's right-wing clear election favourite: poll
OSLO (AFP) - Norway's centre-right opposition, led by the Conservatives and including a populist anti-immigration party, looks set to oust Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg in a general election, a poll showed Sunday as voting began in parts of the country.
A survey published in daily Aftenposten credited the four centre-right parties with 54.3 per cent of voter support, which would give them a comfortable majority of 95 of 169 seats in parliament.
The centre-right is made up of the Conservatives, headed by Ms Erna Solberg who is tipped to become the next prime minister, the populist Progress Party, and two smaller parties, the Christian Democrats and the Liberals.
Meanwhile, Mr Stoltenberg's centre-left coalition, composed of his Labour Party, the Left Socialists and Centrists, garnered just 39 per cent of voter sympathies in Aftenposten's poll, which would translate to 68 seats in parliament.
