Appointed on 17 October 2005, it is a coalition between the Labour Party, the Socialist Left Party and the Centre Party, known as the RedGreen Coalition. The cabinet has ten members from the Labour Party, five from the Socialist Left Party and four from the Centre Party. It replaced Bondeviks Second Cabinet following the 2005 parliamentary election where the three parties won a majority in parliament.
In the 2009 parliamentary election, the three parties retained their majority, and the coalition continued. The cabinet is the first time the Socialist Left Party has sat in government, and the second time, after the post-war interim Gerhardsens First Cabinet, where the Labour Party sits in a coalition government. It was the first cabinet to have had a majority of women, and the first to have had a member with a non-Western heritage.
There have been several changes since Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg presented his first team in October 2005: From 1 January 2010 there will be a change in the Ministry structure. The Social Inclusion division of the Ministry of Labour and Social Inclusion will be split between the Ministry of Children and Equality and the Ministry of Justice and Police. The Church affair division of the Ministry of Culture and Church Affairs will move to the Ministry of Government Administration and Reform.
