Ex-Austrian Chancellor Kurz May Come Out as Clear Winner in Snap Vote - Analysts

Sebastian Kurz could make a comeback in Austria's September snap vote after being removed as chancellor on 28 May, said Bill Ravotti, moderator of the V4 Report, and EU expert Klaus Jurgens, commenting on the balance of power in the country following the scandalous Ibiza video release.

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has been removed from office with the right-wing Freedom Party (FPO), his former ally, and the opposition Social Democrats (SPO) backing a no-confidence vote.

The move followed a scandal involving former Vice Chancellor and FPO leader Heinz-Christian Strache who was caught on camera discussing a controversial "deal" with an alleged "wealthy Russian woman" in Ibiza in 2017. Later, Strache said the woman was actually a Russian-speaking Latvian citizen, while Austrian Kronen Zeitung reported, citing unnamed sources, that she was actually a Bosnian student, with no confirmation following.
