Erling Wikborg

Erling Wikborg (5 November 1894 – 6 April 1992) was a Norwegian politician for the Christian Democratic Party.

He was elected to the Norwegian Parliament from Akershus in 1945, and was re-elected from Oslo on two occasions.

Wikborg held a number of other prominent posts. He was the second leader of the Christian Democratic Party from 1951 to 1955, and a member of the Norwegian Nobel Committee in 1965 and from 1967 to 1970. From August to September 1963 he was Minister of Foreign Affairs during the short-lived centre-right Cabinet of John Lyng.

A lawyer by profession, he was born in Drammen, graduated with a cand.jur. degree in 1918, and studied international law in France and England in 1922 and 1923.
