Valgerd Svarstad Haugland

Valgerd Svarstad Haugland (born 23 August 1956 in Kvam, Hordaland) is a former Minister of Culture and Church Affairs and former leader of the Christian Democratic Party in Norway between 1995 and 2004, to which also former Prime Minister Kjell Magne Bondevik belongs.

As Minister of Culture and Church Affairs she paid special attention to voluntary work.

She withdrew as party leader at an extraordinary annual assembly of the party on 23 January 2004. The main reason is that she was blamed as being responsible for the poor results during the last local election, held September 2003. In the 2005 parliamentary elections she failed to win a seat in parliament.
