The Parliamentary Ombudsman supervises public administration agencies. Supervision is carried out on the basis of complaints from citizens concerning any maladministration or injustice on the part of a public agency. The Parliamentary Ombudsman processes complaints that apply to government, municipal or county administrations. The Ombudsman may also address issues on his own initiative.
|Making a complaint to the Ombudsman is free of charge. Complaints must be in writing. You can make a complaint by completing the complaints form or writing a letter.|
In 2014 the Norwegian Parliament elected Supreme Court Judge Aage Thor Falkanger as ombudsman for the current parliamentary term (4 years).
