Video transcript - "60 Seconds with Torkil Åmland (FrP)" My name is Torkil Åmland, I am the candidate number four from (The Progress Party in) Hordaland.
We have 4 representatives in the parliament today and we hope to have the same this election.
The Progress Party I am representing is a right wing political party.
We hope that we will have a new government after this election.
We don't want the more socialistic government that we have now. We want to have a new government which we can participate in.
We want to have more liberty for the individuals and less bureaucracy.
We want to lower the taxes and have a better condition for the economy. We want to invest money on building roads, equipment and infrastructure. So we could create economic values in the future.
We also want to have a restrictive immigration policy, so you could help those with real needs.
But we do not want have people who are (here) for criminal purposes or drugs purposes and want to have a more tougher policy toward this kind of groups. We want to help those who have real needs.
