History

The party held seats in the Storting between 1924 and 1930, and again from 1945 to 1949 (when it was Norway's 4th largest political party, with more than one in ten voting for the party), and finally from 1953 to 1961. In 1975, it took part in forming the Socialist Left Party, Norway's largest radical leftist party today.

NKP was formed in 1923, as a result of a split in the Norwegian Labour Party. NKP played a very active role in the resistance against the german occupation forces, but also had to pay very high price as a lot of the members were executed or sent to consentration camps in Germany. The party gained a lot of popularity for its active resistance during the war, and had a strong position both in the parlament and in the labour movement. Furthermore- Soviet forces (october 1944)had liberated the northermost part of Norway ( Finmark) and thrown out the occupants.


The reason for the party's decline in popularity is often accredited to then Labour Party Prime Minister Einar Gerhardsen's famous speech at Kråkerøy in 1948, 4 days after the communist takeover in Czechoslovakia. In it, he condemned the actions in Czechoslovakia, but he also warned that the same thing could happen in Norway if the Communist Party was given too much power. The speech represented the start of an open and hidden propagand campaign against the party and its members, with the clear purpose of scaring away people and voters, and reduce its influence in the labour movement. The secret police and the ruling social-democratic party succeeded in this, as well as the communist party had also had several strong internal divisions that diminished the party. Det norske Arbeiderparti - The Norwegian Labour Party The Norwegian Labour Party (Det norske Arbeiderparti, DNA or Arbeiderpartiet, AP) is a social democratic political party in Norway. ... This is a list of Viceroys (Rigsstatholder) and Prime Ministers (statsminister) of Norway. ... Einar Gerhardsen (May 10, 1897 - September 19, 1987) was a Norwegian politician from the Labour Party. ... 1948 is a leap year starting on Thursday (link will take you to calendar). ...


The NKP was always considered to be very loyal followers of Moscow, although it now and then took independent positions opposing the "Moscow-line". This happened in 1968, when NKP condemned the sovietled invasion of Tchecoslovakia. The party still publishes a weekly paper called "Friheten" ( Freedom) which was startet as an illegal paper in 1941.
