Ina Rangønes Libak, head of the Labour Party Youth League, reminded all those present, including the President of the Storting, how vital the battle to uphold democracy and freedom of speech is against those who want to stop people from using their democratic rights. Photo: Storting.

The Storting present at the commemoration of 22nd July

The President of the Storting, Tone Wilhelmsen Trøen, and representatives of the parliamentary party groups were present at the memorial ceremony in Oslo nine years after the terrorist attacks on the Government Quarter and the island of Utøya.

Karl Korneliussen Kleppe was a Liberal Party MP for 24 years. He liked to document daily life in the Storting. Here, members of the Parliamentary Press Club are more than willing to have their photos taken at Løvebakken in 1924. Front, left to right: Per Dahl (NTB), Anton Beinset (Den 17.

100 years of the Parliamentary Press Club

A century ago this year, the journalists who cover what goes on in the Storting founded their own association. The aim of setting up the Parliamentary Press Club was to ensure that its members had acceptable working conditions.
