Erna Solberg Biography

NOR:

 

Erna Solberg (født 24. februar 1961 i Bergen) er en norsk politiker (H). Hun har vært Norges statsminister siden 16. oktober 2013, partileder i Høyre siden 2004 og innvalgt på Stortinget fra Hordaland siden 1989. I 2005 ble hun også parlamentarisk leder. Solberg var leder i Høyrekvinners Landsforbund 1993–1994, kvinnepolitisk leder i Høyre 1994–1998, kommunal- og regionalminister 2001–2005 samt 1. nestleder i Høyre 2002–2004.

 

Som kommunal- og regionalminister arbeidet hun særlig for et styrket velferdstilbud innenfor rammen av færre og sterkere kommuner, foruten regionalt samarbeid på tvers av fylkeskommunene. Hun reformerte også den norske asyl-, flyktninge- og innvandringspolitikken, og etablerte en fungerende praksis for rask behandling av asylsøknader uten grunnlag. Siden hun tiltrådte som partileder i 2004, har Solberg særlig betonet den sosiale delen av – og det verdimessige grunnlaget for – Høyres politikk. Partiet har også antatt en mer utpreget pragmatisk kurs.

 

Etter stortingsvalget i 2009 har oppslutningen rundt Høyre som parti og Solberg som statsministerkandidat steget betraktelig på meningsmålingene. Kommunestyre- og fylkestingsvalget i 2011 ble Høyres beste siden 1979. Foran stortingsvalget i 2013 var det et uttalt mål for Høyre å danne en koalisjonsregjering mellom Høyre, Fremskrittspartiet, Kristelig Folkeparti og Venstre med Solberg som statsminister, og valgresultatet gjorde det mulig for Erna Solberg å starte sonderinger med sikte på å skape politisk grunnlag for en ny regjering under sin ledelse.

ENG:

 

Erna Solberg (born 24 February 1961) is a Norwegian politician who is the current Prime Minister of Norway and has been the leader of the Conservative Party since 2004. She has served as a member of the Storting since 1989 and served as Minister of Local Government and Regional Development in Bondevik's Second Cabinet from 2001 to 2005. After winning the elections, she is the second female Prime Minister of Norway after Gro Harlem Brundtland.

 

Political career

Solberg was a deputy member of Bergen city council in the periods 1979–1983 and 1987–1989, the last period in the executive committee. She chaired local and municipal chapters of the Young Conservatives and the Conservative Party. She was the leader of the nationwide Conservative Women Association from 1994 to 1998, served as deputy leader of the Conservative Party from 2002 to 2004 and became party leader in 2004.

 

She was first elected to the Storting (Norwegian Parliament) from Hordaland in 1989 and has been re-elected on five occasions. From 2001 to 2005 Solberg served as the Minister of Local Government and Regional Development under Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik. Her alleged tough policies in this department, including a firm stance on asylum policy, earned her the nickname "Jern-Erna" (Norwegian for "Iron Erna") in the media. However, numbers show that the Bondevik government (2001–2005) actually let in thousands of more asylum seekers than the later centre-left Red-Green government (2005–2009). In 2003, Solberg also proposed to introduce Islamic Sharia Councils in Norway after being informed about the existence of such councils in the United Kingdom, and in 2004 said that she wished increased immigration to Norway.

 

In April 2008, it was revealed that in 2004 Solberg, as Minister of Local Government and Regional Development, rejected Israeli nuclear whistleblower, Mordechai Vanunu's request for asylum in Norway.
