Ousted after release of compromising video

Austrian chancellor Sebastian Kurz was ousted in a no-confidence vote during a special Parliamentary session after the release of a compromising video showing footage of Austrian Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache talking to Russian businessmen.

Until the next election, which is planned for September, President Alexander Van der Bellen will appoint an interim care-taker government to replace Kurz who at the age of 32 was the youngest leader in the world.
