Premier-Designate Lars Kor- vald announced he has suc- ceeded in forming a three-party centrist minority cabinet. Korvald, 56, chairman of the Christian Peoples party, went to the royal palace and pre- sented to King Olave the names of the cabinet members who will replace Labor Premier Trygve Bratlalis's caretaker government later this week. The Korvald cabinet is made up by representatives of his own parly, the anti-Common Market faction of the split Lib- eral party and (he anti-Com- mon market Centre party which released both its chair- man Jon Austrheim, 50, and deputy chairman Dagfinh Vaar- vik. 48, for cabinet posts. The Liberal party got five ministries and the Centre party six. Korvald's party settled for three leser ministries in addi- tion to the premiership. As expected, prominent anti- Common Market members took over the important ministries of foreign affairs, trade, fish- eries and Industry.
