Former Norwegian Prime Minister and Conservative party leader Kåre Willoch is dead.
Oslo – The former Norwegian Prime Minister and Conservative party leader Kåre Willoch is dead. He fell asleep at home in Oslo’s Ullern district on Monday, as his party Høyre announced in the late afternoon. Norway’s head of government from 1981 to 1986 was 93 years old.
“Kåre Willoch is one of the greatest politicians of the post-war period,” said Høyre chairwoman Erna Solberg. Like all of Norway, he had shaped the conservative party since the 1960s and had been a leader in the modernization of Norwegian society. Your thoughts are above all with Willoch’s wife Anne-Marie, his children, grandchildren and other relatives. (dpa)
