SINGAPORE: Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg has been caught on camera playing Pokemon Go on her phone during a debate in parliament on Tuesday (Oct 4). According to reports this was not the first time she was caught playing the mobile game in the chamber.


Ms Solberg was pictured playing the game during the opening debate at the Storting, Norway's parliament house, on Tuesday (Oct 4), reported The Independent.

The Prime Minister played the augmented reality smartphone game while the leader of Norway's Liberal party, Trine Skei Grande, was addressing the house.

According to The Guardian, Ms Solberg is a big fan of Pokemon Go, as evident when she took some time out to play the game while at an official trip in Slovakia. She reportedly said then she was keen to hatch some of her 10km eggs.

Grande, who was also seen playing the game during a meeting on national security in August, laughed off the news by tweeting: “She heard what I said, we ladies can do two things at the same time you know.”
