2003 Norwegian county council election

Last updated

The 2003 county council election was held on Monday 15 September 2003 for all eighteen county councils in Norway. The election was held parallel to the municipal council election.

A County council is the highest governing body of the county municipalities in Norway. The county council sets the scope of the county municipal activity. The council is led by a chairman or county mayor (fylkesordfører). Members of the council are elected for a four-year term through the general local elections. It is common for members of a county council to also hold seats in municipal councils, but very rare that they also hold legislative (Storting) or other government office, without a leave of absence.
