Labour Party leader Jens Stoltenberg wants a third term as Norways prime minister, and on Friday he revealed a new ministerial line-up aimed to help them all win re-election. At the forefront is Jonas Gahr Støre, who will leave the foreign ministry after seven years to take over the even tougher role as health minister.
Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg called Jonas Gahr Støre "the best health minister we can have," after deciding to transfer the longtime foreign minister to the embattled health ministry. PHOTO: NRK screen grab/Views and News Støre has long been considered the current Labour-led left-center coalition governments strongest minister after Stoltenberg himself. The two have worked closely together for years, and Støre said that when Stoltenberg asked him to take on the health ministry challenge, he could only accept.
It will be hard to leave the foreign ministry, Støre told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK). He said, though, that he would try to inspire and support a health care sector thats been strained by massive reorganization, ongoing budget cuts and widespread criticism from both the public, health care workers and opposition politicians.
Støre stressed that he didnt believe he was taking over a ministry caught up in catastrophe. Ive seen how health care works in other countries, said Støre, drawing on his years of globe-trotting as foreign minister. Støre, a former head of the Norwegian Red Cross, said he thinks the majority of Norwegians are satisfied with the health care they receive, praising Norwegian innovation, highly skilled doctors and nurses and new, modern facilities.
Theres no question, though, that Stoltenberg is hoping Støre, known for a no-nonsense approach to getting things done, will be able to do just that and restore confidence in Norways state-run hospitals and health care delivery. Health is the most embattled of Norways ministrys at present, Støre said he felt well-qualified to lead it. Stoltenberg called him visionary and inspiring, with a talent for accomplishing specific tasks.
The only new face in the government is 29-year-old Hadia Tajik, (a Muslim) the youngest person to ever be named a government minister in Norway. Stoltenbergs announcement of her appointment on the grounds of the Royal Palace sparked spontaneous cheers and applause, and he described her as hard-working, knowledgable and new-thinking, offering a clear and strong voice to the public debate. Tajiks parents emigrated from Pakistan to Norway, she grew up in a small town in Rogaland on Norways west coast and is educated as a journalist and lawyer. Stoltenberg said hed been considering her as a minister ever since she worked as one of his advisers back in 2008.
You took the uncharitable thought right out of my mind....
Who’s the Minister of Herring?
They are just begging to be creamed at election time
I don’t know but John Goss is our carp czar and Cameron Davis is our Great lakes czar. we have the Champions of Change for Art coalition, too! :)
There have been several deaths at one of the largest hospital because of to few people working at the hospital.
Anyone who has been to Oslo in recent years knows that the city is overrun with Islamics, esp Groenland area. There are areas of Oslo that are so crime-ridden that even the US Embassy had to put out a travel warning...not to walk around Oslo, alone, after dark.
A few years ago, someone told me it could never happen in Norway. I said if you let one in, they multiply like cockroaches. He laughed. He ain’t laughing anymore.
Ir’s happening here too...way more than it should be and it’s darn scary.
You have a carp czar? Ehhhhh that’s a no good boss. I say everyone’s responsible for their own carp. I don’t want him worrying about my carp. Sometimes, I eat too much cheese and I no carp for two, three days. No sirree.....what kinda job is that...carp czar? He sit down at the sewage plant and grade the carp? “Oh, that one as big as a wiener dog.” “That one look like a potato.” Nope.....that’s no job for any man with a nose.
All the parties, I think, has a muslim in the top tier. At least.
The infiltration is moving even faster than in Britain. This outfit is a think tank, one of many:
It’s run by a guy who used to be an iclamic missionary, but is now a police attorney. High up in the hierarchy is Lars Gule, a “former” islamic terrorist.
I said this was one of many of these think tanks; a lot of money is being pumped into this activity.
A few years ago it didn’t look like it could. Boy, do I stand corrected.
I don’t know but I hear he carps all day and isn’t worth a chit!
It wasn’t so bad up until about 2000 when the Somalis started to arrive and getting all the benefits the government were handing out and the Iraqis and Iranians started coming too.
Most Pakistanis and Turks who had arrived in the early 70’s have integrated pretty well and for the most part they have been seen as an asset. But the recent arrivals have been another story.
My mother was shocked when she was here in 2003 as she waited at the central train station...she thought she was in Mogadishu not Oslo.
Yeah, I worked with some of them in the IT-business. Good people. No islamist nonsense.
