Siv Jensen was unanimously re-elected as FRP leader at the party’s one-day national meeting at Gardermoen on Saturday.

She stated that it was not just up to the FRP to secure agreement on the state budget. That responsibility she thought also rested on Prime Minister Erna Solberg (H).

The National Assembly will next year adopt a new program. On Saturday, 23 political statements were processed.

Want young people to be able to sell alcohol and tobacco

The national meeting of Frp will work to increase the punishment for sexual intercourse with animals. It should also be a criminal offense to deal with images or videos that show abuse of animals, the party believes.

The issue that sparked the most debate on Saturday was the proposal to allow young people under the age of 18 to sell tobacco and alcohol. It was adopted by a large majority. The party unanimously decided that drugs should continue to be illegal.

The question of helping to save the airline Norwegian was another hot topic. The Progress Party’s youth (FpU) wanted a no to this. But the national assembly rejected FpU’s proposal.

  • Cases concerning the extraction of minerals are transferred to the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.
  • Work to remove the press support.

In addition, the party believes that Norway should ask for help from NATO in connection with the computer attack on the Storting that became known this week.
