Olaf Michael "Olemic" Thommessen (born 18 April 1956 in Lillehammer) is a Norwegian politician for the Conservative Party and the President of the Storting from 8 October 2013 until 15 March 2018. On March 8, 2018 he announced that he would step down due to controversies surrounding a building project for a new entrance to the garage for Stortinget. The project saw the initial budget ballooning and questionable decisions taken and Thommessen acknowledged his overall responsibility and said he would step down.
