vienna - The conservative ÖVP led by Sebastian Kurz and the right-wing FPÖ van Heinz-Christian Strache won the parliamentary elections in Austria, according to forecasts based on preliminary results. Both parties booked 30.5 and 26.8 percent, respectively, of votes in terms of the previous elections in 2013 respectively.
The social democratic SPÖ of the current chancellor Christian Kern suffered a slight loss of 26.2 percent. Two green parties and one liberal party each float around 5 percent.
The continuation of the coalition of SPÖ and ÖVP is not in line with the expectation in May after the breakdown, because of that, too many hard words have fallen in the campaigns.
ÖVP leader Kurz can become the youngest chancellor of Austrian history with his 31 years. He has voted for a strict migration policy, something that the FPÖ also stands for.
