Norwegian daily Klassekampen claimed Christian Democratic Party (KrF) may change party’s controversial confession clause in the national convention to be held in Bergen in 16.-18 October.
According to the confession clause, it is required to profess the Christian faith to be the member of the party. The newspaper reported that the first step of removing this requirement will be taken in the convention. However, removing the whole confession section will be a minimum of four year-long process.
According to the party’s legislation, the party’s mission statement and confession clause can not be modified. To be able to propose to change it, two-thirds majority votes have to be ensured in two consecutive years. Then, removing it will again require two-thirds majority vote in two consecutive years.
