Austrian President Officially Dissolves Government After Vote of No-Confidence

On Monday, the Austrian parliament passed a motion of no confidence against Chancellor Kurz and his government amid the scandal involving the ruling party's coalition partner, the FPO, whose former leader Heinz-Christian Strache was taped discussing potentially exchanging government contracts against help with the election.

Austrian President Alexander van der Bellen has officially dissolved the government under Chancellor Sebastian Kurz a day after the latter lost a no-confidence vote.

The President has tasked Vice Chancellor Hartwig Loger to serve as the country’s Chancellor until interim head of cabinet is appointed.

Unprecedented censorship and fake news narratives are being pushed by the globalists after the EU election results.

This comes after Austrian lawmakers from the Social Democrats and the right-wing Freedom Party passed a motion of no confidence in the government of Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, while Kurz's Austrian People's Party (OVP) and liberal NEOS party voted against the motion.

Earlier, Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache and all ministers from Kurz’s minor coalition partner, the Freedom Party (FPO), except for Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl, resigned on 20 May.

This was preceded by a recently published video that showed Strache discussing a deal that reportedly could have helped the FPO in the 2017 parliamentary elections with a woman posed as a niece of an alleged Russian oligarch from Latvia.
