Norway government seeks extra powers to deal with coronavirus - PM

OSLO, March 18 (Reuters) - Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg said on Wednesday her government would propose emergency legislation granting it the right to make decisions without consulting parliament to deal with the coronavirus.

“We see the need for new measures. Parliament works fast but it takes time. And we need to act fast in this crisis,” Solberg told a news conference. (Reporting by Gwladys Fouche; Editing by Victoria Klesty and Edmund Blair)
