It’s not the first time a member of the government has been caught playing the game in the chamber, but this time it was the prime minister herself

The Norwegian prime minister has been caught playing Pokémon Go during a debate in Norway’s parliament.

Erna Solberg was pictured playing the game during a debate in the Storting on Tuesday. It’s no secret Solberg is a big fan of Pokémon Go. During an official trip in Slovakia, she took some time out to play the game, telling reporters she was keen to hatch some of her 10km eggs.

This isn’t even the first time a Norwegian politician has been caught playing the game while in parliament.

The leader of Norway’s Liberal party, Trine Skei Grande, was seen playing the game during a meeting on national security back in August, at the height of Pokémon Go-mania.

And who happened to be speaking while the PM attempted to catch ‘em all? None other than Grande herself.

Grande seemed amused by the news, tweeting: “She heard what I said, we ladies can do two things at the same time you know.”

According to Norway’s TV2, Solberg said: “I think that Trine will like that I opened the game while she was at the pulpit.”
