  Article Content


The Progress Party, Fremskrittspartiet, (Norway) emphasise primarily the need for lowered taxes and tougher immigration laws.In a country with barely 4.5 million people this party appeals to those who are concerned with immigration, in spite of the fact that the current immigration rate is far below the EU average. Despite strongly leading in the polls in December 2002, it has fallen behind the Sosialistisk Venstreparti[?] and the Det Norske Arbeiderparti. It is the most right-wing of the parties represented in the Storting, the parliament, and is by many believed to be a populist party with no cohesive political agenda. The Progress Party has experienced several scandals due to members' collaboration with racist and neo-nazi groups.
