FPÖ Emerges as Third Strongest Party after Austrian National Elections
The Austrian national elections were held on September 29. The elections do not show a move towards right-wing nationalism just because the far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ) emerged as the third strongest party. This was told by Herbert Vytiska. He was an advisor to the former Austrian foreign minister Alois Mock.
The results of election were out on Sunday for the Austrian National Council. It confirmed a continuance of the two-thirds majority consisting of the Social Democratic Party of Austria (SPÖ), the Austrian People's Party
(ÖVP) and The Greens. The three parties were declared as pro-European parties.
Neither of the two new parties, the new liberal party Neos (New Austria) nor `Team Stronach' of Austro-Canadian car-parts magnate, played the role of leaning the scales towards a right-wing majority, as predicted. It appears as if Austria will continue to be a steady partner to the EU for at least coming few years.
Austrian media sources specified the extension of an SPÖVP-government. However, it is not possible to say whether the government will turn out as predicted because its leader has not been elected up till now.
Latest developments show SPÖ party leader Werner Faymann had previously determined a meeting with the ÖVP and has discarded off the prospect of talks with the right-wing Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ).
