|I was curious about the Nobel Peace Prize Committee and the economy, political situation and political parties in Norway.http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/articles/committee/index.htmlhttps://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/geos/no.html
It seems that the Red-Green Coalition, also known as the Socialist Coalition, has a slight majority in the Storting, the Norwegian Parliament, that appoints the five member Nobel Peace Prize Committee.
The current members of the Nobel Peace Prize Committee and their party affiliation:
||Mjøs, Ole Danbolt (Chairman)
||Christian People’s Party
||Furre, Berger Ragnar (Dep. Chairman)
||Socialist Left Party
||Five, Kaci Kullman
The Norwegian Nobel Committee Since 1901
No wonder Al Gore won– the “watermellons” had a lock and a former Conservative Minister actually nominated Al Gore for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The one person I believe should have received the Nobel Peace Prize and never did was Mohandas Gandhi. He was nominated five times.

Gandhi & the Nobel Peace Prize
“It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom.
It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might err.”
~ Mahatma Gandhi
