OSLO (Reuters) – Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg will hold a news conference at 1315 GMT (8:15 a.m. ET) to comment on her efforts to secure a fiscal budget for 2017, the government said on Wednesday.

Solberg’s minority right-wing government has so far failed to secure a majority in parliament for its proposed spending plan.
