their party must be open to a broad civic coalition that also includes the
Progress Party. Raja, talking to Dagsavisen, called for debate in his party
about cooperation with the Progress Party.
Labour Party, on the other hand, expressed disappointment
about the Venstre's rapprochement to FrP. Labor Party Secretary Raymond
Johansen called the process as the center party’s end.
