Willoch's Second Cabinet was a majority, Conservative/Centre/Christian Democrat Government of Norway. It succeeded the Conservative First cabinet Willoch in mid-term to secure a majority, right-winged government, and sat from 8 June 1983 to 8 May 1986. It survived the 1985 election, but it was replaced by the Labour Brundtland's Second Cabinet, after it failed a vote of confidence in the Parliament of Norway eight months later.
