Video transcript - "60 Seconds with Per Rune Henriksen (The Labour Party)" My name is Per Rune Henriksen.
I am the first candidate in this election campaign for The Labour Party in Hordaland. I haven been representing the Hordaland County's Labour Party in the Parliament for 8 years.
I want you to vote to The Labour Party because our aim is to have a society with jobs for everyone.
We think that unemployment is the worse enemy both to the individual's happiness and also to the society's stability.
We'll create values that could contribute to creating a good society for everybody. We think the road to a good society is to have a very good employment rate, and also a very good health care system and education system.
We think that the education system should be run by the society as well as the health care system. Because that is where we can achieve the best results and we have had good results for 8 years now.
