Erna Solberg (the Conservative Party) and Siv Jensen (the Progress Party) celebrated their first 100 days in government with cake and candles in Davos. The "100-day anniversary" started with a breakfast and cake for the press at the Prime Minister's hotel in Davos, where she is staying while participating in the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting.
Both Jensen and Solberg took a deep breath and blew out the 100 candles on the birthday cake, before they congratulated each other on their first 100 days in government.
"I think we have absolutely delivered," Solberg stated. She referred to the government's work in the areas of public transit, education and innovation as good examples of their core political cases.
The Prime Minister thinks that the right-wing government has made a solid imprint on the national budget that they inherited from the former government.
"After 100 days we have made several big and small decisions. Collectively they help strengthen our competitive advantage and give the elderly and the sick improved welfare services. Our priorities have been aligned with what we promised during the election campaign," Solberg says.
Jensen told reporters that she was very pleased with what the Progress Party has accomplished in government, and gave credit to Solberg for their good cooperation.
