KrF politician Hans Olav Syversen announced their alternative budget last week. Accordingly, the party proposes an obvious Christian Democratic center plan.
– We will build community on the values enshrined in our Christian and humanistic heritage. This valuation is based on human dignity, compassion and stewardship. This is reflected through the priorities in our alternative state budget, said Syversen.
