Kurz tasked with forming new Austrian government

Kurz tasked with forming new Austrian government”

Austrian President Alexander van der Belen handed over a mandate to form a new government to the leader of the conservative Austrian People's Party Sebastian Kurtz, reports TASS. One of the most likely coalitions in the future parliament will be the one between the People's Party and the Freedom Party which is described by analysts as far-right and populist.

Arriving at a meeting of conservative European Union leaders, the 31-year-old Kurz said he would speak to all parties in the Austrian parliament before deciding on a governing partner.

Kurz was invited to the president's office after the vote count from Sunday's legislative election had been finalized on Thursday evening.

Mr Kurz, who is the current foreign minister in the outgoing government, is on track to become Europe's youngest leader. But he could also try to renew its alliance with the center-left Social Democrats, who led the increasingly fractious outgoing administration.

He did not rule out a coalition with the far-right Freedom Party, or FPO, which used anti-immigrant and especially anti-Muslim rhetoric during the election campaign.

He added that he was going to talk to all parties in the parliament, and added that he "might even start today", Die Presse reported.
