Mass resignation for Austria’s far right Freedom Party

All ministers from Austria’s far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ) said they would be resigning, throwing the government into chaos. This after Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache, who was also vice-chancellor, was forced to resign at the weekend after a video sting. A drunken Strache was filmed proposing to offer government contracts to a supposed Russian oligarch’s niece.

The FPO threatened mass resignation if Austrian Interior Minister Herbert Kickl was also forced to resign. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz had called for Kickl’s resignation saying that in his capacity as Secretary General he had to take responsibility for Strache’s conduct.
