Norway: Left wing alliance advances

The potential alternative coalition of the Labor, Socialist Left (SV) and Center (Sp) parties continues to look like a viable majority government according to a new poll. The so-called red-green coalition has majority support in a new political survey. Two Easter polls showed that Labor and SV could form a majority government as a pair, the Sentio study indicates that the agrarian Center Party is necessary for a majority. There was strong movement on the opposite side of the political spectrum. The Conservatives advanced 2.1 points to 17.9 percent while government partners the Christian Democrats fell 2 percent points to 6.6 percent. The populist Progress Party dropped fully 4.2 points to 17.8 percent on the Sentio poll, making the Conservatives the largest right-wing party.
