Prime Ministers, and the constitutional role of the Norwegian Monarch

We have a very tight parliamentary general election in Norway today (and after going through similar threads in the British and Danish forums) I decided to start this thread.

Three possibilities:

1. If the Government which consists of the Conservative Party and the Progress Party with the support of the Christian Democratic Party and the Liberal Party gets a majority in the Storting, then Prime Minister Erna Solberg and her Government will continue, at least for now.

2. If the Labour Party, the Centre Party and the Socialist Left Party gets a majority in the Storting, then Prime Minister Erna Solberg will contact His Majesty the King and inform him that there are a new majority in the Storting and will ask him to contact Labour Leader Jonas Gahr St°re. He will then likely from a government with the parties mentioned above.

The formal resignation of the old government and appointment of the new one each take place at a special session of the Council of State. The new government is officially constituted when the King has signed a Royal Decree to this effect. Jonas Gahr St°re will then be the King's sixth Prime Minister.

3. If neither of the two blocks gets a majority in the Storting, then it will (perhaps) be up to the Green Party who tends to support alternative 2. But they have issued an ultimatum on stopping exploration and development of new oil and gas fields, demanding acceleration of the transition to a low-carbon economy.

Read about the changes of governments here:

And about the King’s constitutional role here:

Alternative 1 in my above post happened and there is no need to contact the King.

Will there be a government reshuffle? And if that be the case, what happens?

1. The Conservative Party, the Progress Party, the Christian Democratic Party and the Liberal Party has a majority in the Storting.

2. The 2013-2017 Government (the H°yre Frp Cabinet), which consisted of the Conservative Party and the Progress Party, relied on parliamentary support from the Liberal Party and the Christian Democratic Party through a separate formal agreement giving them influence on policy. That Government will continue, at least for now.

3. The change in this period is that the Christian Democratic Party and the Liberal Party don't want a formal agreement with a Conservative/Progress Government. They want a government with the Conservative Party alone (something they also wanted in the previous Storting period), but the Progress party wont support a government which they are not part of.

4. So what the heck happens now? There are rumors (although very unlikely) that the Liberal Party may join the government, but a government like that wont have a majority either. And most commentators (therefore) think the most likely scenario is that Prime Minister Erna Solberg (leader of the Conservative Party) and Minister of Finance Siv Jensen (leader of the Progress Party) will try to work with the Liberal Party and the Christian Democratic Party without an agreement.

But most importantly since this is a royal forum, If there were any changes in the government, then the King would have to be involved.
