Norwegian Justice Minister Anders Anundsen on Wednesday rejected a request by vice-chair of his own populist party, Per Sandberg, to hold a referendum -like in Switzerland- on immigration. "The Progress Party is sticking to our cooperation agreement (in government) and does not plan a referendum on this matter," Anundsen said.
