BIOGRAPHY

Iselin Vistekleiven , formerly Iselin Jonassen , (born April 8, 1983) is a Norwegian politician for the Labor Party. She was mayor of Vågå municipality from 2012 to 2019.

CAREER

In October 2011, Jonassen was elected deputy mayor of Vågå. Shortly afterwards, she was appointed mayor when mayor Rune Øygard was first reported sick and from May 2012 granted leave of absence from the mayor until a criminal case against him was decided. Jehans Storvik was elected new deputy mayor by the municipal council when Jonassen was promoted to mayor. 

Iselin Jonassen then became Norway’s youngest female mayor. His predecessor Rune Øygard was granted an exemption from the position of mayor by the municipal council on 18 December 2012 after being convicted, and Iselin Jonassen thus continued as acting mayor until further notice. In a municipal board meeting on 12 February 2013, she was then elected mayor for the rest of the election period.

Before she was appointed mayor, she worked at the NAV office in Vågå municipality.

In December 2012, she was named Ottadøl of the Year in 2012 “for having tackled a challenging role as mayor and a challenging year for Vågå in a forward-looking way.”
