1946 -

The post as political adviser at the Office of the Norwegian Prime Minister and in the ministries is the continuation of two posts which developed from the late 1940's - private secretary from 1946 and private adviser from 1974. In 1992 the two posts were replaced by the post as political adviser.

The state secretaries and the political advisers are the political collaborators of the prime minister and the ministers. The state secretaries are appointed by the King, while the political advisers are appointed by the Office of the Prime Minister.
