The coalition between the conservative People’s Party (ÖVP) and the far-right FPÖ has pledged to stop illegal immigration, cut taxes and resist EU centralisation.

It will be led by Chancellor Sebastian Kurz of the ÖVP, who at 31 years old is the world’s youngest leader.

Many police, few protesters as far right enters Austrian government

Hundreds of police sealed off part of central Vienna yesterday (18 December) as Austria became the only western European country with a far-right party in power, but protests against the swearing-in proved small and largely peaceful.

His deputy is FPÖ leader Heinz-Christian Strache, 48, who last year called German Chancellor Angela Merkel “the most dangerous woman in Europe” for her open-door refugee policy and has warned about the “Islamisation” of Europe.

After meeting with Kurz in Brussels, Juncker said he did not want to comment on the new government, saying “I am against any bias.”
