(AP) Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, who has led Norway for eight years, has conceded defeat in the Nordic country's parliamentary elections.


Stoltenberg congratulated Conservative Party leader Erna Solberg on Monday. She will become prime minister as head of a center-right coalition that will have a majority in Parliament.


He said his Labor Party tried "to do what almost no one has done, to win three elections in a row, but it turned out to be tough."
