Successor Brundtland's Third Cabinet

Syse's Cabinet was a minority, Conservative/Centre/Christian Democrat Government of Norway. It succeeded the Labour Second cabinet Brundtland after the 1989 election, and sat between 16 October 1989 and 3 November 1990. It was replaced by the Labour Second cabinet Brundtland after Centre left the coalition due to disagreement over possible Norwegian membership in the European Economic Area. This disagreement was anticipated as the cabinet operated with a suicide paragraph from the beginning.[1] Syse's cabinet had the following composition:[2]
