Norway's Liberals accept PM's ultimatum, preventing government's collapse

OSLO, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Norway's Liberal Party, a junior member of Norway's four-party government, will accept the prime minister's ultimatum on transport policy, preventing the cabinet's fall, Liberal leader Trine Skei Grande said on Friday.

Conservative Party Prime Minister Erna Solberg earlier said the three junior parties in her coalition would have to accept her policy proposal or otherwise leave the government.

The other junior partners, the Christian Democrats and the Progress Party, had earlier said they too would accept Solberg's proposal. (Reporting by Terje Solsvik and Nerijus Adomaitis Editing by Chris Reese)
