The politics of Norway take place in the framework of a parliamentary,representative democratic constitutional monarchy. Executive power is exercised by the Council of State,the cabinet,led by the prime minister of Norway. Legislative power is vested in both the government and the legislature,the Storting,elected within a multi-party system. The judiciary is independent of the executive branch and the legislature.
The Storting is the supreme legislature of Norway,established in 1814 by the Constitution of Norway. It is located in Oslo. The unicameral parliament has 169 members and is elected every four years based on party-list proportional representation in nineteen multi-seat constituencies. A member of Stortinget is known in Norwegian as a stortingsrepresentant,literally "Storting representative".
