Six days to go until the Austrian election next Sunday.
The Austrian Freedom Party (FPÖ) Leader, Heinz-Christian Strache, has vowed to be ‘a thorn in Angela Merkel’s side’ if he wins the legislative election on Sunday.
“We have to signal to Mrs. Merkel that not everything she proposes is good and correct,” he said, adding: “She should show more understanding for not so powerful states.”
Strache says he also wants to align Austria with the Visegrad group (Poland, Hungary, Czech Repulic and Slovakia) saying that the European Union’s attitude towards them, such as calling them “anti-democratic” because of reforms put forward by right-wing governments, was disrespectful.
