Kristin Halvorsen (født 2. september 1960 i Horten) er en norsk politiker (SV). Hun har siden 2009 vært kunnskapsminister i Jens Stoltenbergs andre regjering. Halvorsen var partileder i SV fra 1997 til 2012.


Halvorsen var finansminister fra 2005 til 2009. I embetet som finansminister var Halvorsen både den første kvinnen og den første som representerte et parti til venstre for Arbeiderpartiet.


Politisk virke

Halvorsen har hatt tillitsverv i Sosialistisk Ungdom fra 1982 (leder 1984–1986) og i Sosialistisk Venstreparti (SV) fra 1985 (parlamentarisk leder 1997–2005 og leder 1997–2012) og har vært stortingsrepresentant for SV fra 1989.


Hun var i perioden 1989 til 2005 medlem av Utenrikskomiteen, Den utvidede utenrikskomité, Stortingets valgkomité, Stortingets delegasjon for forbindelser med Europaparlamentet, Finanskomiteen, Arbeidsordningskomiteen og Kontroll- og konstitusjonskomiteen. I perioden 2005 til 2009 var hun finansminister og siden 2009 har hun vært kunnskapsminister.


Da Audun Lysbakken gikk av som statsråd 5. mars 2012, ble Halvorsen settestatsråd i Barne-, likestillings- og inkluderingsdepartementet inntil Inga Marte Thorkildsen trådte inn som statsråd for departementet 23. mars.







Kristin Halvorsen (born 2 September 1960 in) is a Norwegian socialist politician and the former Minister of Finance from 17 October 2005 until 20 October 2009. She is currently the Minister of Education in Stoltenberg's second cabinet.


Taking over as leader of the Socialist Left Party in 1997, she established an unprecedented level of consensus within the party. At the 2005 election, the party received a disappointing 8.8% share of the vote, and in 2009 down further, to 6.2%. Many who describe themselves as being on the left side of the party have suggested that Halvorsen step down. She was succeeded by Audun Lysbakken on 11 March 2012.


The Socialist Left, in coalition with the Labour Party and the Centre Party, won Norway's September 2005 parliamentary elections. The resulting Red-Green coalition government marked the first time that the Socialist Left Party was included in the cabinet. Kristin Halvorsen took office as the 78th Minister of F. nance in Norwegian history and the first woman ever to serve in that post.


She resigned as leader of the Socialist Left Party in 2012.
