Austria: FPÖ Accepts Offer to form Coalition Government

Austria’s anti-invasion Freedom Party (FPÖ) has formally accepted an offer from the Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) to form a coalition government, and talks have already started in that regard because the two parties “agree on tax cuts and immigration,” ÖVP leader Sebastian Kurz has announced.

Kurz told media that the common points between the ÖVP and the FPÖ are, among other things, “the will to prevent illegal migration,” make immigration less attractive in the social welfare field, and reduce taxes, especially for those with lower incomes.

In the parliamentary elections of 15 October, the ÖVP took 31.5 per cent (62 seats), while their former coalition partners, the far left Socialist Democratic Party of Austria too 26.9 percent (52 seats). The FPÖ’s vote went up 5.5 percentage points to take 26 percent, or 51 seats.

This means that the FPÖ and the ÖVP will have a comfortable majority in the 183 seat Austrian parliament.

Kurz earlier said that “very constructive” preliminary talks had already been held between his People’s Party (ÖVP) and the FPÖ.

He said he hoped an agreement would be reached by Christmas. “Austria deserves to have a stable government formed quickly,” he said.

For its part, the FPÖ has already publicly asked to hold the position of Minister of Internal Affairs—which will give that party effective control of the immigration, asylum and border policing policies, all issues which are the core of preventing Austria being completely flooded by the Third World invasion.

Should the FPÖ get this position—which appears likely—it is extremely likely that Austrian immigration policy will start mirroring that of neighboring Hungary, and might spark off a major confrontation with the European Union.

In an official statement released by the FPÖ, party leader H.C. Strache said his party would not be rushed into a coalition, because there are many “detailed questions” and a number of “red lines” which could not be crossed.

According to the Austrian Ministry of the Interior’s official figures, over 90,000 nonwhite invaders demanded “asylum” in that country in 2015. A further 42,073 invaders pulled the same trick in 2016.

Over half of them have already been granted “refugee” status by the former Socialist Party-led government.

  1. I don’t hold out much hope that the FPO/OVP alliance will really do much to curb immigration into Austria which has almost double the rate of net immigration that Britain has. What I expect to happen is that efforts will be made to curb undocumented immigrants, including those claiming to be refugees, and they will be used as a scapegoat to divert the public’s anger and frustration about overall high levels of immigration. They will never declare that balanced migration is a long term objective. Finally, I do not expect a border barrier to be built along Austria’s border with Italy to halt the passage of the African boat people and other fake refugees.
