The Progress Party (Norwegian: Framstegspartiet) was a short-lived Norwegian political party. The party was registered on 17 July 1957, and was headed by Jan Palmer Tiseth from Svorkmo.[1] It ran for election in the county of Sør-Trøndelag in 1957, where it achieved 0.1% of the vote. The party received the fewest votes during the election, and hence, was not represented in the Norwegian Parliament.[2] As late as in 1965 the party was still reported to be a registered political party in Norway,[3] but didn't run for any elections since 1957.
