Monday came LO captain Peggy Hessen Følsvik with amazing help from SV. The proposal soon collapsed, after the Center Party rejected the proposal almost immediately.
Socialist Party leader Trygiv Slagsvold Widom cited security policy as a crucial reason why expanding the government was a bad idea. He noted, among other things, that the SV’s no-NATO decision could have delayed decisions in the government, including questions about arms assistance to Ukraine.
Acting Commander SV Kirsti Bergstø contradicted Vedum’s statement by claiming that the Socialist Party leader was “inventing arguments” to banish SV. She confirmed that SV and Sp had actually worked together for eight years with conflicting views on NATO.
Perhaps the SV in the government would have found some form of action after the outbreak of the war that would not have prevented a quick response. However, Vedom’s and the Center Party’s points are good and relevant.
For SV, it should be a reminder that their unresolved relationship with NATO has a political cost.
after Russia It attacked Ukraine on 24 February, highlighting the security policy of both Rødt and SV. The SV quickly decided that the matter should not be decided until the national meeting next spring.
It was a question that the party should take the time to easily figure out.
Thus the party could escape a difficult controversy as it was asked for an answer about its relationship with NATO.
With the Center Party’s effective attack on NATO’s security policy, the ghost of NATO quickly returned, nibbling at the party behind it.
SV is standing in a strange position Divide into this question. Like Rødt, the vast majority of party voters are in favor of Norwegian NATO membership. On the other hand, there is strong opposition among store hosts. The party, which was formed on the basis of opposition to NATO, is having great difficulty freeing itself from the story of its creation. Security policy analysis necessarily needs a very different basis today than it did in the 1960s.
The party is not only Try to postpone the case, but to make it as inconspicuous as possible. In an interview with Aftenposten, Kirsti Bergstø stated that the party should not say no or no to Norwegian NATO membership.
“It is not a question of yes or no for NATO. The question is how to formulate our relationship with NATO on the basis of the new situation,” said Bergstow.
The SV must continue to delude itself into believing that the party does not need a clear position. It is definitely a good solution to calm internal conflicts. However, this week’s mini tour shows that Norwegian parties without a clear security policy are having a tough time.
