Saturday there was a hectic final of the campaign ! In Spydeberg, one of the IC network municipalities, the election is very open this year. The former mayor Stein Haaland was elected 4 times from the Center Party. After he passed away the council has been chaired by Mrs. Brit Gulbrandsen. She is not running for reelection in Spydeberg. She is running for seat in the regional council of √ėstfold County. Mr. Sigmund Lereim is the new candidate from the Center Party.

The campaign has been affected by the tragic incident the 22nd July. However, as weeks have passed the political life has become more normalised and even though the sympathy for the Labour Party has been significant, the political debate has become stronger towards the end of the campaign.
