REFILE-Norway c.bank deputy chief steps down over security clearance

(Refiles to recast headline)

OSLO, Dec 4 (Reuters) - Norwegian deputy central bank governor Jon Nicolaisen will resign with immediate effect after his application for a renewed security clearance was rejected, the central bank said in a statement on Friday.

"The Norwegian Civil Security Clearance Authority informs me that the reason that I will not receive a renewed security clearance is that my wife is a Chinese citizen and resides in China, where I support her financially," Nicolaisen said. (Reporting by Terje Solsvik, editing by Gwladys Fouche)
