- Norway’s election results show a swing to the left, with Labour, Centre and Socialist Left having a combined majority of five in the new parliament. Crucially, these three parties can govern without the support of the Green Party.
- We see limited implications of the result for investors, with the Norges Bank still set to raise the policy rate on 23 September.

- On 13 September, Norway will hold parliamentary elections to the 169-seat Stortinget. Polls suggest that the ruling coalition will lose power to a centre-left coalition, led by Arbeiderpartiet (Labour).
- A win by the centre-left would probably strain Norway’s relationship with the EU, as some coalition members support a renegotiation. Nonetheless, we think any fundamental change in their relationship is unlikely at this stage.
