Trygve Slagsvold Vedum, Leader in the Centre Party, want the Government to preserve Lofoten, Vesterålen and Senja. The Centre Party has stated that they are against oil drilling in the area. - There are only three parties in the Storting that considers oil drilling in these vulnerable areas. That is the Labor Party, the Progress Party and the Conservative Party, says Slagsvold Vedum in a statement. He mentioned that four of the six municipalities in Lofoten say no to oil drilling. In 2010, five out of six said yes, according to the newspaper Klassekampen. - Having clearly resistance from both the people nationally and the locals, not least with the Conservative Party`s own mayors, it is time that the government and the Labour Party puts this case to rest, once for all, says Slagsvold Vedum.
