Norway's Labour Calls For Debate On Oil Tax Regime

The party said it could provide crucial votes both for the left and the right, but under one key condition.

"Our ultimatum to them, our single condition is 'Stop exploring for oil and gas'. We do it because of the climate and also because it is a key criterion of the Paris climate agreement," Rasmus Hansson, the party's single representative in the current parliament, told reporters.

"We want to be a kingmaker in this election."
