The talented Aila Emilie Kamaly (26) from HURDAL (Aftenposten) SV from Gjøvik may be involved in negotiating a new governance platform. – Exciting and challenging, she says.
While the Center Party will not appoint negotiating committees until it is clear whether there will be government negotiations, SV is speeding towards government offices.
On Saturday, the SV national board approves the mandate and the negotiating committee for the planned government negotiations with the Labor Party and the Socialist People’s Party.
The Central Board recommends to the National Board that the SV (UA) working committee represent the party in the negotiations. Is:
- Party leader Audun Lysbakken.
- Deputy Leaders Kirsti Bergstø and Torgeir Knag Fylkesnes
- Party Secretary Audun Herning
- and AU member Aila Emilie Kamaly.
It is a magazine not described in the political environment outside of SV. She has been general secretary of the Socialist Youth and was elected to the leadership of the party in the national assembly this spring.
Kamaly was born and raised in Gjøvik. The parents are Iranian refugees. She is studying the Middle East and studying Arabic at the University of Oslo. He lives with the leader of the SV group in Viken.
Lokalavisen: with bones in the nose
She thinks it will be exciting to meet political canons like Støre and Slagsvold Vedum on the other side of the table:
– At the same time, I think that the fact that I am not an adult politician, but a young student, gives me the necessary perspectives in politics. A lot of people my age want a clearer policy for minor differences and do something about the climate crisis.
– I hope I can be a voice for those who otherwise do not experience being heard and prioritized by politicians, he replies.
With bones in the nose. Aila shockingly swept straight into SV’s top management, “wrote the local Oppland Arbeiderblad newspaper after the national meeting.
– What political ambitions do you have?
– I started to get involved in politics because I think we have to do something about the unjust differences in Norway and the world. It has always bothered me that a few at the top have so much power and resources, while so many people live in poverty.
– Also in Norway, there are people who make a fortune with our common resources, and the rich are getting richer. At the same time, many Norwegians are struggling to make ends meet. My goal is to help make the world fairer, he replies.
Included in top SW
The size of the negotiating delegations of the Labor Party, the Socialist People’s Party and the Socialist People’s Party is still unclear.
In the polls that began Thursday morning, only two from each party are participating: Labor leader Jonas Gahr Støre and Deputy Leader Hadia Tajik, SP leader Trygve Slagsvold Vedum and Parliamentary leader Marit Arnstad and SV Audun leader. Lysbakken and deputy leader Kirsti Bergstø.
If the parties agree to enter into negotiations, the delegations will be expanded. The last time the red-green parties negotiated a government platform in Soria Moria in 2005, three negotiators from each party participated.
Therefore, it may be that only Lysbakken, Bergstø and Knag Fylkesnes need to negotiate directly with the Labor Party and the Socialist People’s Party. But Kamaly, in any case, will be connected, will get continuous information on progress and will be part of the group of key SV members who provide advice and warnings on the way to what could end the power of the government.
He prepares “by listening to what worries those who have voted for a new government.”
– SV has made a good choice because people believe and hope that we can take Norway in a fairer and more climate-friendly direction. So I owe it to them to work for it. I will also listen to the popular movements that SV is a part of, such as the trade union movement, the women’s movement and the environmental movement, says Kamaly.
Free this weekend
After a somewhat solemn opening of the polls, where party leaders formulated the most important challenges and opportunities facing Norway, they quickly moved on to the specific contentious issues.
Everything from predators, oil and gas exploration, repeal of reforms, taxes, and climate policy will be in the limelight. At this stage, only the parties explain their views and point out where movement is possible. The various topics are concluded without specific decisions and will be taken up again later.
After the inauguration on Thursday morning, the delegations hid inside. The polls continue on Friday. On Saturday and Sunday there will be a break due to a meeting of the SV national board, a parliamentary dinner and confirmation in the family of the SP leader.
Signs of SV indicate a strong desire to enter government.
– There is a strong will to come up with a clean solution, says Møre og Romsdal SV leader Bjørn Jacobsen.
– We entered the negotiations with the ambition to agree on a platform with a really new direction for Norway, says Rogaland SV leader Ingrid Fiskaa.
The party has proposals for a negotiating mandate close to its chest.
– This is what we have prioritized for many years: Climate and inequality. It is clearly stated in the mandate. Like a red-green thread, says Ingrid Fiskaa.
