Monarchy Support Highest in 20 Years

May 19, 2014

According to News in English:

The new poll conducted by research firm Norstat for NRK showed that more than eight out of 10 Norwegians support the royal family and don’t want any other form of government, such as a republic with an elected president.

“These are clearly the highest numbers I have heard about in at least 20 years,” Carl-Erik Grimstad, a political scientist…, told Norwegian Broadcasting (NRK) on Friday.

“…the monarchy stands firm in Norway, there’s no question about that,” Alstadheim said. “In the foreseeable future, abolishing the monarchy in Norway is likely as improbable as us joining the EU.”
