Member of Parliament, KrF (by Hildegunn Bernsen)

Dagrun Eriksen (born 28 June 1971 in Kristiansand) is a Norwegian politician for the Christian People's Party (KrF). She has been deputy leader of the party since 2004.

Political career[edit]

Eriksen was elected into the Norwegian parliament (Storting) from the county of Vest-Agder in 2001. She was not re-elected in the 2005 elections, but took Jon Lilletun's seat upon his illness and later death. In 2009 she had the top spot on the party´s ballot in Vest-Agder and

In 2012 Eriksen lost a fight for the top spot on the party´s list for the Norwegian parliamentary election, 2013 to Hans Fredrik Grøvan and will not be on the ballot at all. Possible explanations for her loss according to pundits might have been that she was perceived to have focused too much on national politics and too little on the county´s particular issues and that she was perceived as too liberal on some issues.[1][2]
