Kristelig Folkeparti (KrF) er et kristendemokratisk politisk parti i Norge. | The Christian Democratic Party is a political party in Norway.





Kristelig Folkeparti (KrF) er et kristendemokratisk politisk parti i Norge. Kristelig Folkeparti ble stiftet i 1933 som en reaksjon på tiltagende sekularisering i samfunnet. Partiet identifiserer seg som et sentrumsparti bygd på et kristent livssyn. Skjønt det ofte har blitt omtalt som et borgerlig parti, foretrekker partiet selv betegnelsen «ikke-sosialistisk».


Knut Arild Hareide har vært partileder siden våren 2011, mens Dagrun Eriksen og Bjørg Tysdal Moe er nestledere. Partiets ungdomsorganisasjon, Kristelig Folkepartis Ungdom (KrFU), ledes av Elisabeth Løland. Fra 2009 består Kristelig Folkepartis stortingsgruppe av ti representanter. Hans Olav Syversen og Line Henriette Hjemdal er henholdsvis parlamentarisk leder og nestleder.

The Christian Democratic Party (Bokmål: Kristelig Folkeparti, Nynorsk: Kristeleg Folkeparti, KrF), is a Christian democratic political party in Norway founded in 1933. The Norwegian name literally translates to Christian People's Party. The name may also be translated as "The People's Christian Party", thus not excluding non-Christian voters.


Knut Arild Hareide is the current leader of the party. Their leader from 1983 to 1995, Kjell Magne Bondevik, was one of the most prominent political figures in modern Norway, serving as Prime Minister from 1997 to 2000 and 2001 to 2005. Under the old leadership of Bondevik and Valgerd Svarstad Haugland, the party was to some extent radicalized and moved towards the left. Due largely to their poor showing in the 2009 elections, the party has seen a conflict between its conservative and liberal wings over which direction their political ideology should shift in the future.
