Video transcript - "60 Seconds with Tom Sverre Tomren (MDG Party)" Hello everybody.
My name is Tom Sverre Tomren and I am from the Green Party in Norway.
I want you of course to give your vote to the Green Party.
Why? Because the Green Party is the political party that actually fights for the right for the nature, for your right to stay here as well.
I know that many of you have experienced in your own country that nature may have been destroyed and pollution is all over.
In this country the environment is in quite clean and good and we want it to be that way.
We want to welcome you to stay here.
We would like to take (in to Norway) at least 2000 refugees as amended by the United-nations, every year.
We would also guarantee that their applications would be treated quickly.
If they don't have an answer within 3 months, you would have the right to apply for a job in Norway. That is our official policy.
And of course, if the (your) children are integrated in the Norwegian society, they should stay here.
