New gov can slash taxes by 50 billion: Progress
Christian Tybring-Gjedde - Progress Party
09:17 CEST+02:00
The junior partner in Norway's incoming coalition is pushing for the incoming government to slash taxes by at least 50 billion kroner ($8bn), with inheritance tax scrapped and the threshold for income tax raised.
"At least 50 billion in tax cuts must be a natural ambition for the government and I think we can achieve it," Christian Tybring-Gjedde, the Progress Party's tax policy spokesman, told Dagsavisen. 
 
Progress has called for 100 billion in tax cuts, while their Conservative Party allies campaigned on promises of 25 billion kroner in cuts. 
 
"I hope we can agree on something that is between the Conservatives and the Progress Party," Tybring-Gjedde said.
