The Kingdom of Norway elects members for its unicameral 165-seat parliament, Storting. 

Norwegian members of parliament are chosen through an open-list proportional representation system for a period of four years. This year's election is the fourth for the country's current Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, who was last defeated in the 2001 parliamentary elections. 

The Red-Green Coalition, a centre-left coalition formed by the Labour Party, the Socialist Left Party and the Centre Party, aspires for re-election the third time. 

The individual municipal councils can determine whether or not their municipalities will hold elections the day before the nation-wide election.
