Venstre in Norway holds congress ahead of parliamentary elections

ALDE Party member Venstre in Norway held a digital congress from 23 to 25 April, ahead of the country’s parliamentary elections scheduled to take place in September this year. One of the focal points of the congress was the party’s electoral programme.

Opening the congress, party leader Guri Melby highlighted her party’s focus on the country’s youth, speaking of their difficult situation during the COVID-19 pandemic and noting that Venstre is working on solving the climate crisis, ensuring there are enough jobs for future generations and equipping schools for the digital future. She underlined her party’s call for guaranteed childcare following parental leave and shared her perspective on the country’s drug policy, among others.

In her speech, Melby also spoke of the importance of international cooperation and solidarity in fighting not only climate change but also human rights abuse, declaring the treatment of Alexei Navalny in Russia unacceptable.

For more information on the congress and digital recordings of the speeches (in Norwegian), have a look at Venstre’s website.
