AUSTRIA WILL HOLD ELECTION ON SEPT. 29, WITH FAR-RIGHT IN ASCENDANT




Austria's next general election will be held on Sept. 29, at the end of the current five-year parliament, Chancellor Karl Nehammer said on Tuesday, deferring a showdown with an emboldened far-right for as long as possible.

Polls show the far-right Freedom Party (FPO) with a clear lead over its rivals, capitalising on voter dissatisfaction with the ruling coalition of Nehammer's conservatives and the Greens, which has been fuelled by crises ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic to inflation far above the euro zone average.
