OSLO (Reuters) – Norway’s tax-cutting Prime Minister Erna Solberg is on track to keep power after an election on Monday, closely defeating a Labour-led opposition in a campaign over how to manage the oil-dependent economy, official projections showed. The ruling coalition of the Conservatives and Progress Party, and two smaller centre-right allies, would win 88 seats in the 169-seat parliament, Norway’s Directorate of Elections projected based on a count of early votes. A separate TV2 forecast gave the government and its allies a wider majority of 91 seats.
