Policy: Vestre will take over the job left vacant after Ingvild Kjerkol’s departure last week, sources say Television 2. The online newspaper also experience the same.

The job as minister of industry will thus become vacant, and two names are being put forward as potential replacements for Vestre: Marianne Sivertsen Næss from Finnmark and fisheries minister Cecilie Myrseth. TV 2 and Nettavisen further write that the government plans to make the changes in the government next Friday.

TV 2 asked Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre on Tuesday if he already knows who will be the new health minister:

– Heh heh. Today is Tuesday, but I have a pretty good idea of ​​what I think is the right thing to do. But I won’t have anything new to say about it until it’s ready, replied Støre.

At the same time, he answered in the affirmative that he is starting to get a clear idea of ​​what he is going to do.

Vestre has so far not wanted to comment on a possible job change, pointing out that this is up to Støre to decide.

– I am Minister of Business as long as the boss decides, Vestre told TV 2 on Friday last week.
