Two years later, he was nominated to the Storting and became a parliamentary candidate for Hedmark along with his party colleague Trygve Slacksvold Vedum (44). During this period, he visited both the Judiciary Committee and the Foreign Affairs and Security Committee and gained a lot of knowledge about it.
In 2021, the Labor Party and the Center Party formed a government, and then Mehl became an apt name.
– First of all, this is a huge confidence vote. Because one says, “I believe you will make it.” This is probably one of the greatest compliments you can receive. And that’s one of the things I’m most appreciative of – I met people who dared to believe in me. Give me hope. That’s what he and Trygway did there. “I’m very grateful for that,” the politician says in the podcast episode.
