The Liberal Party’s national meeting decided on Friday night that it did not want to provide new licenses for oil exploration.
Therefore, the participants followed the wishes of the Minister of Climate and Environment and Vice Chairman Sveinung Rotevatn, who also chaired the planning committee.
-This is a very important step for the party, but I think it has come now. Rotevatn told NTB on Tuesday that we don’t think it will be a good warehouse or benefit the climate. We will explore more and more remote waters to obtain more and more complex resources.
SV will also vote on the proposal at the national meeting this weekend, and the Christian People’s Party will vote on the proposal at the national meeting next weekend.
The National Conference of the Liberal Party also decided that they are in favor of onshore and offshore wind power generation, and the Liberal Party hopes to build more cables to Europe and electrify Norway’s continental shelf.
