Prime Minister of Norway 2013 to 2021
Solberg was first elected to be a member of the Storting (Norwegian parliament) in 1989 and was Minister for Local Government and Regional Development in PM Kjell Magne Bondevik's Second Cabinet from 2001 to 2005. During her tenure, she oversaw the tightening of immigration policy and a centralization of the administration.
During her time as minister, she secured her way upwards by denying Israeli nuclear engineer Mordechai Vanunu asylum. He fullfilled all conditions for asylum in Norway, according to the Directorate of Immigration (UDI) in the fall of 2004, but Solberg instructed the directorate to terminate the application, explaining that an approval "would be an active act against the Israeli governemnt.
As Minister, Solberg instructed the Norwegian Directorate of Immigration to expel Mullah Krekar, an exiled Kurdish leader of an Islamist extremist group, Ansar al-Islam, with known ties to Western regime change operations. He was evicted for being a danger to national security. Later, "terrorism" charges were filed against Krekar for a death threat he uttered in 2010 against her.
Two years after her Bilderberg participation, she became Prime Minister, in a right wing coalition government. As Prime Minister, and former Chair of the Norwegian delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, she has championed ever closer ties to the US government and military.
During her administration, Norway has become host for a steadily increasing number of US and British bases, and an ever closer integration of the Norwegian army with the US military apparatus, a sharp charge from the policy during the last Cold War, when the policy was no foreign troops on Norwegian soil.
Economically, she has overseen a privatization of national resource companies, like electricity and oil, where international owners now dominate.

After having led the lockdown policies since March 2020, Solberg broke the corona regulations and met with more than 10 family and friends on several occasions during a February 2021 holiday (illustrating what the rulers think of their own rules).
In September 2023, it was revealed that her husband, Sindre Finnes, had in total made more than 3600 share trades during Erna Solberg's Prime Minister period. He had traded shares in many different companies, including the armaments company Kongsberg Gruppen, the oil company Equinor and the salmon company Mowi. Erna Solberg claimed that she did not know all of Finnes's stock trades, and that her husband had lied to her about the trading. Solberg claimed to have asked for a complete list of her husband's stock purchases "after she got a bad feeling" just before a September local election, not in time for it to become an election issue.
