Norwegian PM turns taxi driver as part of re-election campaign

London, Aug. 12 (ANI): Norwegian prime minister dressed as an undercover taxi driver for a day to find out voters' concerns.

In a video posted on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube Jens Stoltenberg said it is important for him to hear what people really think.

The video was released while campaigning is in full swing for the September 9 general election, which Stoltenberg's ruling leftist coalition appears likely to lose, latest opinion polls have revealed.

According to Sky News, Stoltenberg wore an Oslo Taxi uniform with a badge in June and picked up passengers in a black Mercedes.

A hidden camera fitted in the cab recorded reactions from the passengers.

An elderly woman who also recognised the PM urged him to do something about the salaries of bosses, complaining that they should not make millions like that, the report added. (ANI)
