The former Minister of Petroleum and Energy was excluded at a county board meeting in Nordland Frp 5 November, writes VG.
The newspaper writes that the reason why Freiberg has been excluded is allegations that he has leaked an internal document to the newspaper Dagens Næringsliv.
Freiberg confirms that he has been thrown out of the party in an email to VG.
– I can confirm that I am excluded and have no comments other than that I do not understand the decision on exclusion and the reasons for this.
Freiberg was elected to the Storting from Nordland in 2017, but lost the battle for first place against Dagfinn Olsen earlier this year. From August 2018 to December 2019, he was Minister of Petroleum and Energy.
