On Monday afternoon, Sylvi Listhaugh will probably become the deputy chairman of Frp. The party has to decide if she will take on the position or not.
It is also uncertain that the party’s second deputy, Ketil Solvik-Olsen, can continue to work while living in the US. Many are suggesting that the duo will help party leader Siv Jensen to pull the loot during the preparations of the local elections next year.
On August, Per Sandberg resigned from the government and the party leadership. Listhaug made herself available to take on the position.
“I want to stand up for the party. I am engaged and have spent a lot of time traveling around the party organization. I will continue to do that, Listhaug told NTB during Arendalsuka.
She made clear the ambitions for the election campaign. She promised that they will try to take charge of as many municipalities of Norway as they can.
While many people believe that no one can better fill the place of Sandberg than Listhaug. Mathias Fischer, who has written a book about Listhaug, is on the list of the supporters. There are also some people who think that she is not the good choice.
“It’s not everyone in Frp who thinks she’s the right to mark the party, especially if you think a little further, who will take over Siv Jensen,” says Minerva writer Jan Arild Snoen.
Snoen also believes that the parties who are committed to civil society will not like if Listhaug puts the cooperation at risk.
