Austria’s parliamentary elections, held on 29 September, have produced no clear winner.
The two parties in the current ruling ‘grand coalition’ – the centre-left Social Democrats (SPÖ, led by the current Chancellor, Werner Faymann, and the centre-right Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) – saw their representations fall but are still in a position to renew their pact.
However, the ÖVP is also exploring the possibility of a right-wing coalition, especially given that the Freedom Party (FPÖ) saw a leap in its representation, allowing it to strengthen its position as the third force in Austrian politics.
The Greens and Team Stronach, a new Eurosceptic party, gained seats to finish fourth and fifth respectively, but fell below some expectations. Surprisingly, a new liberal party, NEOS – The New Austria, entered parliament, with nine members.
The Alliance for the Future of Austria (BZÖ), which had 21 seats in the outgoing parliament, was not able to overcome the four per cent hurdle and so is no longer represented in the National Council.
