Party leader considers resigning

Valgerd Svarstad Haugland considers resigning as party leader for the Christian Democrats after yet another disappointing supporter survey.

“I am of course considering it, but I have not decided yet,” Svarstad Haugland said to the Norwegian daily Aftenposten.

The Christian Democrats got only 5.3 percent support in the new survey for October, a decrease of 1.6 percent since the election this fall. The survey was conducted by Opinion on behalf of Aftenposten and the television channel NRK.

Furthermore, the party only got a support of 5.4 percent in another survey for October. The party’s support has decreased with 7.0 percent since the national election in 2001, according to a survey conducted by Sentio-Norsk Statistikk.

Svarstad Haugland admitted that this is just too poor.

“How long can you continue as party leader when the results are so poor?”

“I can not evaluate that today,” Svarstad Haugland said to TV 2.

Several newspapers have called Christian Democrat members and asked if Svarstad Haugland should resign. According to the paper Dagsavisen, several central members in the party said she should be replaced as soon as possible, but none of them wanted their names published.
