The Norwegian Parliament Presidency today debated whether Parliament should be called to an extraordinary meeting before October 1. The answer was no – yet.
– We are calling for a timetable from the government, says Norwegian Parliament Speaker Masoud Qarahkhani (AP) to VG.
The deadline is Monday, August 15.
The presidency will meet next Tuesday to decide whether there is a need to call an extraordinary meeting in Parliament.
– What should they have a schedule?
There is a timetable for the different procedures. Do we need to meet in Parliament to introduce export restrictions or a new business model? We advocate putting it on the table at this table, says Grakhani.
– So, the government has simply been given a deadline to see if it will succeed in settling this itself or if the Norwegian Parliament should step in and do the job?
I think it’s collectively about taking the position of power seriously, and that applies to both the government and the parties here.
And the majority in the presidency supports that. The minority, the vice presidents from the FRP and SV, want a meeting in Parliament immediately, but instead support a request for a timetable.
Solberg: – A week’s time
Conservative Party leader and former Prime Minister Erna Solberg is impatient to take new measures against rising electricity prices. She told VG that the signal the Conservative Party had given to the government was that a timetable should be set within a short period of time.
By that we mean that in a week there should be a timetable, we can decide whether to accept it, Solberg tells VG.
– What happens if you don’t accept it?
The starting point is to create a good majority with the government. We believe there is no time to wait until October for a solution.
If the government doesn’t do that Agree on To provide 90 per cent of electricity subsidies when the price is already above 70 øre from 1 September, the Conservative Party will support demand for an extraordinary meeting of Parliament.
– What we need from the government now is a timetable for providing electrical support to companies. We respect that they have to work on it, but they have a relatively short time to come to us and tell us when they can finish it.
Solberg says it’s too long to wait until October to adopt it.
