OSLO, Norway (AP) — Polls have opened across Norway for parliamentary elections that could land the anti-immigration Progress Party in government and lead to a change of power in the oil-rich Nordic country for the first time since 2005.
Despite Norway's strong economy and low unemployment, Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg's ruling, center-left coalition has been trailing in opinion polls for months ahead of election day Monday.
The Progress Party appears likely to come into power for the first time as part of a center-right coalition led by Erna Solberg's Conservative Party.
It is the first parliamentary election since the 2011 terror acts, when Anders Behring Breivik killed 77 people. Thirty-three survivors of the massacre on Utoya island, mostly teen members of the Labor Party youth wing, are seeking national office in the election.
