Stavanger Newspaper Calls For End Norwegian Monarchy
The Norwegian newspaper ‘Stavanger Aftenblad’ said in Friday’s editorial that it is time for a constitutional evolution in Norway. An evolution from a monarchy to a republic. They claim that incidents concerning the monarchy are usually swept under the rug, because the Norwegians like ‘such a cosy little family’.
The newspaper has nothing against the royals themselves but they think that the principle is outdated. Furthermore they claim that younger parliamentarians will be in favor of a vote for the republic. The article does not mention a referendum at all, so the newspaper apparently thinks a constitutional evaluation towards more democracy is only worth while it it suits their particular beliefs.
