The negotiations have been ongoing throughout the weekend. The process is now being moved to the SMK, but the members of the Finance Committee at the Norwegian parliament (Storting) will continue leading the talks.
The party leaders are already involved in the process, the news bureau NTB reports.
The Labour Party (AP), the Centre Party (SP), and the SV have been negotiating since November 7th to reach an agreement on next year’s state budget.
Since the AP and the SP have a minority government, they must get the support of another party in the Storting to get a majority for their budget.
The negotiations are currently being led by Eigil Knutsen (AP), Geir Pollestad (SP), and Torgeir Knag Fylkesnes (SV).
The three have had several meetings over the weekend. According to TV2, there is still a large distance between the negotiating parties when it comes to tax and oil issues.
