    2019 Austrian Legislative Election

    Austrian President Sets Date for Snap Elections Amid 'Shameful' Video Scandal

    On Friday, German media outlets reported, citing a video, that in 2017, Austrian Vice-Chancellor Strache held talks regarding a possible acquisition of the Kronen Zeitung newspaper by an alleged Russian woman, whom Strache called a Latvian national seeking to relocate to Vienna and invest there.

    Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen called on Sunday for the holding of a parliamentary snap election in the beginning of September.

    His statement was made after Alexander Van der Bellen had a meeting with Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.

    Earlier in the day, Kurz has said that holding new elections is now a "necessity, not a wish", after he earlier proposed organising snap elections as soon as possible after the video scandal.

    His remark comes after on Saturday, Austrian media cited Kurz as saying that the he was not planning to remain in a coalition with the Freedom Party of Austria (FPO) after the scandal involving Austrian Vice-Chancellor and FPO leader Heinz-Christian Strache. He also expressed his wish to call an early election.

    Prior to that, Strache stated that he is resigning in the wake of the video scandal. On the same day, Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen called the recording showing Strache "a shameful footage".

    On Friday, Der Spiegel and Suddeutsche Zeitung reported, citing a video recording they obtained, that in 2017, Austrian Vice-Chancellor and leader of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPO) Heinz-Christian Strache held talks regarding the possible acquisition of the Kronen Zeitung newspaper by an alleged niece of a Russian oligarch; this move was allegedly made to secure help in the legislative elections. Strache, for his part, stated during a press conference that he was approached by a purportedly Latvian national with her daughter who wanted to invest in Vienna.

    Could Austria's far-right make a comeback in the elections?

    Relatively unscathed by the 'Ibiza-gate' scandal that brought down its government in May, Austria's far right hopes for a second chance in national elections next month.
    Former chancellor Sebastian Kurz's conservative People's Party (ÖVP) could once again partner with the far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ), said analyst Thomas Hofer, in a re-run of late 2017 when the two parties rose to power together on an anti-immigration platform.

    "The conservatives are more cautious today than they were in 2017 to renew an alliance with the FPÖ… But this possibility cannot be dismissed because any other form of coalition would be unstable," Hofer told AFP.

    Popular despite scandal

    The ÖVP-FPÖ partnership came crashing down in spectacular fashion in May when hidden camera footage from 2017 showed then FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache appearing to offer public contracts to a fake Russian backer in exchange for campaign help.

    After the footage emerged, Strache resigned as vice chancellor and from all his other posts, the coalition fell apart, Kurz was thrown out in a no-confidence vote – the first-ever such successful vote in modern Austrian history – and fresh elections were set for September 29th.

    Despite the unprecedented chaos, both the ÖVP and the FPÖ – founded after World War Two by former Nazis – have sustained their popularity, according to polls.

    The ÖVP remains the strongest party on 36 percent, while the FPÖ stands at 20 percent, six percentage points lower than in October 2017 but neck-and-neck with the Social Democrats, according to a recent surey by the Unique Research institute published in the weekly Profil magazine.

    Strache has continued to defend himself from various corruption allegations on his Facebook page.

    The page counts almost 800,000 followers – far more than his party colleagues and most other Austrian politicians – and its administration was recently taken over by the FPÖ.

    FPÖ leaders have sought to distance themselves from Strache, a heavyweight who flirted with neo-Nazism in his youth and led the party for 14 years.

    His wife Philippa, however, is running for a parliament seat on the party's list.

    Norbert Hofer, who replaced Strache as FPÖ leader, has openly said he wants another coalition with Kurz.

    "We extend a sincere hand to the conservatives to continue the work begun together to reform Austria," Hofer, who ran for president in 2016 and narrowly lost to a green liberal politician, told reporters recently.

    FPÖ campaign billboards which have started to spring up around the central European alpine country of 8.8 million people proclaim the party wants to "renew the patriotic coalition" that Hungarian nationalist Prime Minister Viktor Orban has touted as a "model" for all of Europe.

    Party infighting?

    However, Kurz has made it a condition of any cooperation that the FPÖ's former interior minister Herbert Kickl, another heavyweight known for his incendiary rhetoric, not return to government.

    That has put Hofer, who is also seen as an ideologue but who has a softer public persona, in a tough spot and fuelled rumours of party infighting.

    One of the biggest controversies of Kickl's tenure were interior ministry raids on Austria's domestic intelligence agency BVT.

    Numerous documents were seized, raising fears among Austria's Western partners over possible leaks to Moscow.

    The FPÖ has a cooperation agreement with President Vladimir Putin's United Russia party.

    In the Unique Research survey, 60 percent deemed an ÖVP-FPÖ partnership incapable of governing after having drawn ridicule internationally with 'Ibiza-gate'.

    "There are several challenges… A comeback will be difficult," Patrick Moreau, an Austrian expert at the French National Centre for Scientific Research, told AFP.

    Kurz, whose party's popularity now is four percentage points higher than in October 2017 but who cannot form a majority government alone, has so far avoided saying which partner he prefers.

    He ended a coalition with the Social Democrats – who are scoring their lowest-ever poll numbers – when he took over the ÖVP leadership in 2017, triggering that year's elections.

    A possible coalition with the Greens has been floated, which would be a first on the national level but similar to those which already govern some Austrian states.

    The Greens stand at 12 percent in the Unique Research survey, far higher than in 2017, when they failed to make the four percent threshold to enter parliament in a shock result.

    Apparently the Greens made some significant gains and might even be asked to form a coalition government with Sebastian Kurz. I guess all this climate change propaganda has influenced voters' opinions. It's too bad that right-wing parties ignore environmental issues and have allowed the leftists to monopolize them, considering the health of a nation's soil is an important matter. Strangely greens usually promote mass migration which isn't the best for the environment. Heard that in some areas in the US it got so bad that typhoid fever and bubonic plague have resurfaced after centuries.

    Will anything change? Probably not. Has anything changed while the FPÖ was in charge? They've become politically correct, heard Strache supported banning the Identitarians...

    Quite alot changed with Kickl actually, on a realistic scale.

    UN migration compact not signed, Refugees that worked recieved no salary for no longer, record number deportation, closed borders and Kickl itself never took any attempt to bann the identiarians, quite the opposite.

    I agree that Strache sucks alot and hes the reason they lost so much, but Kickl is a genius.

    Mal hier gucken, wie das mit dem Migrationspakt wirklich ist, der ist nämlich nun EU-Recht!

    Getitelt ist das Papier an die vier hochrangigen EU-Beamten mit „The legal effects of he adoption of he Global Compact for Safe, Oderly and Regular Migration (CGM) by the UN General Assembly.“

    Das Papier beginnt mit der Darstellung der Verabschiedung – durch formlose Zustimmung in Marrakesh am 10. und 11. Dezember 2018 und dem darauf basierenden, formalen Beschluss der UN-Hauptversammlung am 19. Dezember des Jahres.

    Es wird verdeutlicht, dass in Marrakesh 164 Staaten für den Pakt und von den EU-Mitgliedsstaaten die Länder Österreich, Italien, Tschechien, Ungarn, Lettland, Polen, Slovakei und Bulgarien gegen diesen gestimmt hatten. Sodann wird dargelegt, dass am 19. Dezember nur noch 152 Staaten einschließlich 19 EU-Ländern zugestimmt hatten, während Tschechien, Ungarn, Bulgarien, Israel und die Vereinigten Staaten mit Nein votierten. Die ursprünglich ablehnenden EU-Staaten Österreich, Bulgarien, Italien, Lettland und nun auch Rumänien enthielten sich bei der Schlussabstimmung, die Slovakei nahm daran nicht teil.

    Migrationspakt ist längst EU-Recht

    Nach diesen Formalien konzentriert sich das EU-Papier mit dem Aktenzeichen „sj.i(2019)691461 LG/sa“ auf die EU-Verträge und macht deutlich, dass der Global Compact im Sinne der von allen EU-Staaten unterzeichneten EU-Verträge nunmehr von allen EU-Staaten befördert werden muss (to be promoted). Sodann bezieht sich das Dokument auf ein gemeinsames Statement aller EU-Institutionen vom 30. Juni 2017, veröffentlicht als „The New European Consensus on Development: Our World, Our Dignity, Our Future“ (deutsch: Der neue europäische Konsens über die Entwicklungspolitik „Unsere Welt, Unsere Würde, Unsere Zukunft“.).

    (Interessant ist in dem Artikel auch die Propaganda von correctiv als einziger Stelle, die Tichy zu erklären versucht, dass das alles larifarischwammiunverbindlich ist. Correctiv ist eine von Soros finanzierte, und seiner "Open Society Foundation" unterstehende NGO!)

    Aber davon abgesehen, ist euer hellblauer (siehe interessante Parallele mit Macrons La Marche hellblau) Pro-EU Fanatiker Kurz eben auch nicht wirklich besser als Merkel. Euch wird der selbe Dreck nur in einer anderen Geschmacksrichtung hinten rum untergejubelt und den Frosch noch etwas langsamer köcheln gelassen als anderswo.
    Ein Leben ist nichts, deine Sprosse sind alles
    Aller Sturm nimmt nichts, weil dein Wurzelgriff zu stark ist
    und endet meine Frist, weiss ich dass du noch da bist
    Gefürchtet von der Zeit, mein Baum, mein Stamm in Ewigkeit

    Sorry for my use of German language here but this is a must.

    Ein riesengroßer Scheissdreck, das muss ich so klar zum Wahlergebnis sagen. Hab mich gestern abend fast aus Frust weggesoffen. Klar hat Strache viel Mist gebaut und gehört dafür gestraft, aber es ändert nichts daran dass die Unregelmäigkeiten und Skandale immer reeeeeeein zufällig wenige Tage vor den Europa- und Nationalratswahlen an die Öffentlichkeit dringen und die linksgrünen Medien diese Infos gierig wie Aasgeier aufsaugen! Das ist verdammt nochmal kein Zufall! Und die Wähler sind so dumm und lassen sich kurzfristig davon beeinflussen, es ist kaum zu glauben, fuck. Jetzt kommen wahrscheinlich die grünen Öko- und 'Refugees Welcome'-Trotteln mit an die Macht, habt ihr das gewollt nur weil Strache Mist gebaut hat??? Echt, was für ein Untertanentum!

    Hofer ist der IB in den Rücken gefallen und redet den linken Medien gerne nach dem Wort, für mich hat er sein Rückgrat verloren. Kickl muss ran und die neue Regierung vor sich hertreiben bis ihnen die Puste ausgeht. Ich erwarte bei den nächsten Wahlen einen großen Erfolg der FPÖ. Man darf sich jetzt nicht spalten lassen.

    Und nochmal zu Strache: Okay, er hat sich dumm angestellt, sich verarschen lassen und nicht sauber abgerechnet, aber man sollte seine Erfolge nicht vergessen. ER hat die FPÖ nach der Spaltung durch Haider und BZÖ wieder nach vorne gebracht, er war jahrelang DAS Aushängeschild der FPÖ und hat mit seinem Eifer, seiner Angriffslust und seinem Charisma die Gegner reihenweise als unfähige Phrasendrescher dastehen lassen. Die Erfolge sind doch nicht einfach weg durch zwei bis drei saudumme Aktionen.

    Bin einfach nur sauer und enttäuscht. Die FPÖ hat jetzt nur 2-3% mehr Stimmen als die AfD in Deutschland. Praktisch gleiche Verhältnisse. Mist, ich reg mich zu sehr auf, schau mir die Nachrichtenseiten heute gar nicht an. Nur linkes 'Hähähähä FPÖ hat verloren'-Gesabbel! Haltet doch einfach eure Fotzn.

    I actually found it a bit strange that the Ibiza corruption scandal was published just a little before the EU elections earlier this year. I guess that shows how much these elections can be swayed and meddled with, despite the apparent "democratic" process...

    Yeah, that's exactly what I said, in German. These scandals were each published just days before election day. That's no coincidence.
