Norway's Christian Democratic Party seeks to join centre-right minority government


Norway's Christian Democratic Party, which holds the balance of power in parliament, will seek to join the centre-right minority government, it said on Friday, likely cementing Conservative Prime Minister Erna Solberg's grip on power.

As expected, delegates at a congress of the small centrist party voted in favour of negotiations with Solberg's cabinet, rejecting a proposal to switch allegiance to Labour and form a centre-left government.
