Kjell Magne Bondevik Norwegian politician

Kjell Magne Bondevik is a Norwegian Lutheran minister and politician. As leader of the Christian Democratic Party, he served as Prime Minister of Norway from 1997 to 2000, and from 2001 to 2005, making him Norway's longest serving non-Labour Party prime minister since World War II.

Prime Minister of Norway head of government of Norway and the most powerful person in Norwegian politics

The prime minister of Norway is the head of government of Norway. The prime minister is the chief of the executive branch of the government of Norway and the head of the state cabinet. The prime minister and Cabinet are collectively accountable for their policies and actions to the monarch, to the Storting, to their political party, and ultimately the electorate. In practice, since it is nearly impossible for a government to stay in office against the will of the Storting, the prime minister is primarily answerable to the Storting. The prime minister is almost always the leader of the majority party in the Storting, or the leader of the senior partner in the governing coalition.
