A large part of those have earned a golden nose with political change, it is also clear that it is now difficult to show a different color. Basically it doesn’t matter who becomes BP anyway, but you can clearly see the structures of how the money machine grabs each other’s €. Now the population is taking a different course and the net of high people is collapsing. 🙂 nice

The evil of all parties: They are all wonderful in speaking and proclaiming, with declarations of intent and slogans in the media and on posters. But action, if it comes at all, is often in contradiction to previous world improvement speeches.

Two questions that Stefan.T researched for were not answered. Just proclaiming party slogans is not enough for someone to get an idea of what the FPÖ is doing. So now question 3: Why did the FPÖ vote against the package that should restrict or prevent wage and social dumping?

Sorry! of course “that” instead of “that”.

Left-Green’s attempt went completely in the pants when they wanted to portray Austria, this time at the UN, as “xenophobic and racist”. Obviously, Brussels alone is no longer enough for them. Ban Ki.-Moon declared: “Those who exclude divide the country”; you didn’t expect it like that!

Incredible conditions in Red-Green Vienna! From gang wars that are out of control, to drug dealers pushing into the residential area, every 10 meters along the U 6 there is a drug dealer, rape and sexual harassment of women, every hour at least 5 violent crimes, etc. ., etc. Mr. Land from the Federal Criminal Police Office confirms that. And then Vienna will choose Van der Bellen?

Some asylum seekers receive well over € 6,000 minimum income and travel for € 4 with a monthly ticket. Austrian citizens pay € 48.20 ……

An asylum seeker does not receive a minimum income, how often? Your lies will not get truer if they are repeated over and over again. Statistics from the Federal Criminal Police Office show that the crime rate has fallen. Tip: watch less crime thrillers and if you do, don’t mix what you’ve seen with reality.

Asylum seekers receive 40 € pocket money per month, provided they end up in the basic care. You may only enter for € 4 if you are well behaved in the German course or to another integration measure (further training).123 essay Only recognized refugees (in the case of temporary asylum it looks different again) and persons entitled to subsidiary protection without income or assets were entitled to minimum income.

Even red-green have confirmed the € 8,000 for an Afghan asylum seeker who came to Austria in 2011. Häupl said: “Cutting social benefits is out of the question”.
gerhard gugelhupf Thursday, May 19. 2016 20:06
Not correct! Asylum seekers do not receive any minimum insurance, only for immigrants with a residence permit the same rules apply as for Austrians. An Austrian family of 11 with 2 disabled children would also come to 8000/11 = 723 € per person.

Editor: You are almost in line with the kleinenzeitung, which blocks every 2nd “foreigner topic” for commenting, or the pink paper that only publishes postings that are true to the line (!) Quickly. Have a nice day, comrades, or whatever you want to be called. 🙁 Note: Where and with whom your sympathy lies is difficult to overlook. Therefore – thanks again for the recommendation. 🙂

The election is defeated and there is a clear winner: FPÖ candidate Norbert Hofer clearly won the first round of the 2016 federal presidential election with 35.1 percent of the vote. The opponent of the Burgenlander in the runoff election will be Alexander Van der Bellen, who is the leader in all polls before the election, with 21.3 percent. The postal voters have not changed anything in the front seats, but have changed in the back rows.
The postal votes have been counted – and, as expected, have not changed anything in the first three places. But the almost 535,000 postal voters helped Rudolf Hundstorfer (SPÖ) to take fourth place ahead of ÖVP candidate Andreas Khol. The voter turnout increased with the postal vote from 60.0 percent on Sunday to 68.5 percent on Monday. FPÖ candidate Norbert Hofer clearly remains first, but his share of the vote has been reduced to 35.1 percent compared to the election evening (36.4). The Green Alexander Van der Bellen clearly held second place with 21.3 (Sunday 20.4) percent and is in the runoff on May 22nd. The party-independent candidate Irmgard Griss just missed this. They also benefited from the postal vote with 18.9 percent compared to 18.5 in the preliminary results.
This was also done by Rudolf Hundstorfer, who now has 11.3 percent of the vote instead of 11.2 – while ÖVP candidate Andreas Khol suffered a slight decrease from 11.2 to 11.1 percent and is therefore only fifth. This is quite unusual, usually the ÖVP does better than the SPÖ with the postal voters. Richard Lugner finally got 2.3 (Sunday 2.4) percent.

The popularity of postal voting has continued to grow: 534,776 valid votes were cast in this way, which corresponds to 12.5 percent of the total valid votes. In the 2010 federal presidential election – where it was possible to vote by post for the first time – the proportion was only 8.8 percent, and in the 2013 national council election it was slightly lower at 11.4.
A total of 4,371,912 of the 6,382,486 Austrians over the age of 16 used their voting rights on Sunday, which resulted in a turnout of 68.5 percent – but again significantly more than the meager 53.6 percent before six elections. 4,279,170 votes were valid.
7:00 p.m.: SPÖ Presidium discusses election disaster
The SPÖ presidium did not meet in a good mood on Monday evening to discuss the disaster for party candidate Rudolf Hundstorfer in the federal presidential election. The red grandees did not want to hear about a personnel discussion. More or less willingly they answered the relevant question that party leader Werner Faymann was firmly in the saddle.
However – the personnel issue was not completely off the table. After all, Carinthia’s governor Peter Kaiser had previously brought forward the SPÖ federal party conference via “Presse”. This is scheduled to take place in November. On Monday before the Presidium, Kaiser said that personnel, but also strategic and structural decisions belong in a party congress and that this could therefore be held earlier in order to avoid “limbo”, as he put it in the “press”. When asked whether Faymann was “firmly in the saddle”, Kaiser first replied: “We are not a rider party.” When asked, he said a “yes”.
“We can’t go back to business after such a result.”
Health Minister Sabine Oberhauser, when asked by the journalists whether Faymann was the right party leader, only said: “I won’t clarify that with the journalists.” But some made it clear that it was not a routine meeting among party friends either. “After such a result, we cannot go back to the agenda,” said Vienna’s mayor Michael Häupl. SPÖ Federal Managing Director Gerhard Schmid did not want to speak of a crisis meeting, but it was a meeting for urgent reasons. Similarly, Minister of Infrastructure Gerald Klug: He did not want to describe the meeting as a “normal meeting” “against the background of yesterday’s election”, but now the result – like the ÖVP – has to be “digested”. When asked about the future of his party leader, he said: “My Federal Chancellor and my Federal Party leader is Werner Faymann.” Burgenland’s governor, Hans Niessl, spoke of a “debate that is usual after such a result”. He went into the meeting with clear wording: It is not about people, but about positions.
“There will be no personnel changes at all”
The party chairman himself ruled out any personal consequences: “There will be no personnel changes at all.” For personal carousel games, he has nothing – and neither does the population. Regarding calls for resignation from his party, he referred to the recent broadcast by the red national organizations, which had demonstratively supported him. This broadcast was also brought into the meeting by other members of the Presidium. Faymann also said he understood the warning shot well – “we will deliver what the population expects.” These are, for example, apartments, workplaces and a “clear stance on how to protect the border”.
6:30 p.m.: Griss does not give a recommendation
Irmgard Griss, who ended up in third place in the Hofburg elections, will not make a recommendation for the runoff election on May 22nd. According to the current state of opinion in your team, a recommendation would not fit such an electoral movement of the citizens – but actually only for one party. “I don’t think that would be the right way,” she said on Monday in the Ö1 evening journal.
How to proceed with this movement will be discussed next weekend. Whereby Griss doubts whether founding a party the right way or not “other forms” would be better. She wants to “think about” offers from NEOS for example.
3:51 p.m.: Heinisch-Hosek calls for closer proximity to the citizens
For Education and Women’s Minister Gabriele Heinisch-Hosek (SPÖ) there is currently no time for personnel debates at the top of the SPÖ. On Monday, on the sidelines of an event, she called for a clearer communication of the values of the party and more closeness to the citizens. As a role model, Heinisch-Hosek named the SPÖ women she led, who had been actively approaching people on the street for years.
The contents and values of the SPÖ have been valid for 120 years. The party must now formulate these in such a way that they are also understood. “People think we have lifted off and can no longer get to them.” The SPÖ top has not lifted off, “but maybe we were no longer able to translate some of the people’s language”. The SPÖ top makes many visits to companies or schools, but the work on site is the task of the officials and one has to discuss how this can be improved.
The minister did not make an election recommendation, but: “I personally will vote for Alexander Van der Bellen.”
3:27 p.m .: Roth locates “protest and self-defense voices”
The Austrian author Gerhard Roth was not surprised by yesterday’s election result: “I expected a similar result. I currently live in southern Styria and talk to many ordinary people. I knew what was going to happen.” The dissatisfaction has been growing for a long time: “The 35 percent are not Nazis, but protest votes, but also self-defense votes.”
The refugee crisis is just a kind of catalyst for a long-simmering, unsolved problem, said the 73-year-old. “I think the main problem is invisible poverty. There are a lot of people who are unemployed, have debts or are dependent on basic security. Many small business owners have tax problems. A huge group comes together. This group became the visible poverty that came with refugees in the country, “said Roth today, Monday afternoon, in an interview with the APA.
2:23 p.m.: Stöger and Wehsely are demanding more credibility
The SPÖ must regain more credibility with voters. Social Minister Alois Stöger and Social Councilor Wehsely drew this conclusion to journalists on Monday from the debacle of the red Hofburg candidate Rudolf Hundstorfer. The two did not want to initiate a personal discussion on the sidelines of the state social officers conference.
Wehsely said that the personnel issue was one thing, but it was also about reaching people again with more truthfulness and a realignment. With the Vienna election, this has already been achieved with a clear positioning.
Stöger also did not want to focus on the personnel issue. Rather, he stressed that good politics and credibility are the basis for winning back voters.
1:43 p.m.: Pons warns of populism and nationalism
After the first round of the federal presidential election, the Deputy President of the European People’s Party (EPP), Esteban Gonzalez Pons, warns of a “rebirth of populism and National Socialism” in Europe. “What is happening in Austria, Spain, Ireland and elsewhere shows that the EU is going through a very dangerous phase,” said Pons.
“The three ghosts against which Europe was rebuilt after the war are back: nationalism, populism and xenophobia. But nobody seems to think about them,” said the 51-year-old in an interview with the Milan daily “Corriere della Sera” on Monday. This applies not only to Europe, but also to the USA. “Donald Trump is the ultimate expression of populism in the US,” said Pons.
1:29 p.m.: SPÖ convenes the Presidium on Monday
The SPÖ has called a meeting of the party presidium in Vienna for Monday evening. The SPÖ regional organizations and SPÖ federal manager Gerhard Schmid announced this in a joint broadcast in the afternoon. “We will certainly not have personal discussions. We will not allow ourselves to be divided as a party in these difficult times,” it said.
The aim is to stand clearly behind party leader Werner Faymann at the meeting at 6 p.m. in parliament: “There is only one SPÖ and as such we are all responsible for changing something in our political strategy,” said Schmid. “What certainly does not help us are personnel debates. Together with our party chairman, Federal Chancellor Werner Faymann, we want to reorganize the SPÖ in such a way that it is a trustworthy force for the people,” said the names of all nine state party leaders.
1:16 p.m .: Platter: “Very last” chance for government
For Tyrol’s governor Günther Platter (ÖVP), the governing parties only have one “very last chance” after the results of the federal presidential election. After the “caesura” you would have to recognize the opportunity to “rethink Austria”, said Platter on Monday at a press conference in Innsbruck.
