The hand of Soros: The youngest European chancellor was dismissed for “friendship” with Russia
Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen dismissed Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz. The Chancellor himself initiated his resignation to create a new government without the participation of the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ). Right-wing leader Heinz-Christian Strache discredited himself with a video featuring the "niece of a Russian oligarch"
32-year-old Sebastian Kurtz became the first after World War II Austrian Chancellor, a resigned vote of no confidence. The resignation of the government was initiated by the opposition Social Democratic Party of Austria (SPÖ), but it was also supported by the nationalists from the Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ).
President Alexander Van der Bellen disbanded the cabinet. The Minister of Finance Hartwig Löger, a member of the same ruling Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP), headed by Kurz, will temporarily take over the duties of the Chancellor. Early parliamentary elections will be held in early September. Van der Bellen says the new chancellor should have “broad confidence” in parliament.
After video scandal
Kurtz’s departure was the result of a political crisis. On May 17, the German newspapers Süddeutsche Zeitung and Der Spiegel distributed a video with the participation of the former Vice-Chancellor and FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache. In the video, Strache and his colleague Johann Gudenus talk on a villa in Ibiza with the “niece of the Russian oligarch” where they discussed the sale of a 25% stake in the largest Austrian newspaper Kronen Zeitung in exchange for donations to FPÖ.
Strache called the publication “intentional political assassination,” although he called his act “stupid” and “irresponsible.” He had to resign. Chancellor Kurtz distanced himself from the nationalists.
After Strache’s resignation, Kurtz proposed that van der Bellen convene early parliamentary elections. So the Chancellor’s resignation is a planned step. He does not intend to take responsibility for the mistakes of coalition partners from FPÖ. The Alpine country needs a new legitimate parliament and a government that enjoys the confidence of the population.
Considering the wave of indignation and dirt that fell on the right, Kurtz sees no other way for his party to retain power, except to “drain” its toxic partners. The influence of ÖVP is still strong in order to count on a second victory. The reason for optimism is given by the elections to the European Parliament. The Chancellor’s party received 35% of them, which is three percent more than in the last parliamentary elections in Austria in 2017, and 7% higher than on the vote in the European Parliament in 2014.
17.2% voted for the Strache party - a failure compared with the Austrian elections, in which FPÖ had almost 27%. Social Democrats also “sunk”, but not so seriously, they have - 23.4%.
If the election result in Strasbourg will be repeated at the national level, then the ruling people's party, headed by Kurtz, has no choice but to unite with the Social Democrats. Together with the right or small parties, he cannot claim the majority unless FPÖ makes a sensational comeback.
Theoretically, the right can defend places in the National Council, if they can launch a large-scale campaign that makes them a victim of a conspiracy and an external enemy. However, even if they, along with Kurtz, have enough support to create a government, the reanimation of the old coalition is unlikely. "Ibiza-scandal" hit the authority of the right. Why does Kurtz need a partner, whose member (Strache) is under investigation?
And the rightists themselves are unlikely to want to cooperate with those who technically distanced themselves from them. The FPÖ deputy and Herbert Kickl, the head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, said that the chancellor used the difficulties of the nationalists "to strengthen his power" and get the control of the interior ministry under control. The fact that the FPÖ supported a vote of no confidence only proves the growing gap between the former coalition partners.
Soros removes toxic elements from the EU
Whoever won the election in September, the current situation has shown that the experiment with the government of nationally oriented forces fails. Compromising on Strache sticks out the federalist fears of the “Right” in the EU. Nationalists in power in Austria are a threat to the globalist elite governing the European Union. They will do everything to remove these "harmful" elements from the governments of Austria, Italy and the rest of the member countries of the bloc. Elements that prevent the legalization of same-sex marriages, impede migration from the Middle East and Africa and revive the institution of family and Christianity. The investigation against the head of the Italian League, Matteo Salvini, who abolished the terms “parent 1” and “parent 2”, is one example of the pressure of globalists.
