Between 9 October 2013 and 30 September 2017, the Parliament of Norway consists of 169 members from 8 parties and 19 constituencies, elected during the Norwegian parliamentary election, 2013 on 8 and 9 September. The center-right block received a majority of the seats, with the two largest right-wing parties, the Conservative Party (48 members) and the Progress Party (29 members) forming the minority Solberg's Cabinet. The cabinet had parliamentary support from the Christian Democratic Party (10 members) and the Liberal Party (9 members). The opposition consists of the Labour Party (55 members), the Centre Party (10 members), the Socialist Left Party (7 members) and the Green Party (1 member).

Members of the Parliament of Norway are elected based on party-list proportional representation in plural member constituencies. This means that representatives from different political parties are elected from 19 constituencies, which are identical to the 19 counties. The electorate does not vote for individuals but rather for party lists, with a ranked list of candidates nominated by the party. This means that the person on top of the list will get the seat unless the voter alters the ballot. Parties may nominate candidates from outside their own constituency, and even Norwegian citizens currently living abroad.[1]

The Sainte-Laguë method is used for allocating parliamentary seats to parties. As a result, the percentage of representatives is roughly equal to the nationwide percentage of votes. Still, a party with a high number of votes in only one constituency can win a seat there even if the nationwide percentage is low. This has happened several times in Norwegian history. Conversely, if a party's initial representation in Parliament is proportionally less than its share of votes, the party may seat more representatives through leveling seats, provided that the nationwide percentage is above the election threshold, at 4 percent. Since 2005, nineteen seats have been allocated via the leveling system.[1]

If a representative is absent for whatever reason, his or her seat will be filled by a candidate from the same party-list—in other words, there are no by-elections. Representatives who die during the term are replaced permanently, whereas representatives who are appointed to a government position, such as government minister (cabinet member) or state secretary, will be replaced by a deputy representative until the representative no longer holds the government position.[2] Deputy representatives also meet during typically short-term absence, like when a representative travels abroad with a parliamentary work group or is absent for health reasons.
