Kristian Norheim (born 19 April 1976) is a Norwegian politician for the Progress Party.

Norheim was born in Porsgrunn.[1] He was leader of the Youth of the Progress Party in Telemark from 1993 to 1994,[1] but left the party in 1994 following the 1994 Progress Party national convention and joined the libertarian Free Democrats, of which he was leader from 1999 to 2000.[2] From 1995 to 1999, he sat in the municipal council in Siljan for the Conservative Party.[2] He has since gone back to the Progress Party, where he is an advisor for its parliamentary group.[2] Before the 2013 election Norheim was responsible for international issues as group secretary, and covered this field as advisor to party leader Siv Jensen.

In the 2013 general election he was elected as first deputy to the Parliament of Norway from Telemark. As regular representative Bård Hoksrud was named in Solberg's Cabinet, Norheim took his seat as a regular representative. He is a member of the Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defence.[3]
