35-Year-Old Austria’s Chancellor Sebastian Kurz Resigns Over Corruption

 Austria’s Chancellor, Sebastian Kurz on Saturday October 9 announced he is stepping down from his position following pressure on him to resign after he was implicated in a corruption scandal.

Sebastian Kurz and nine of his associates have been accused of using public money to pay to manipulate polls and to secure friendly reports in the media.

Kurz who revealed that he

would be nominating Foreign Minister Alexander Schallenberg as the new chancellor, while he stays on as the leader of his People's Party (OeVP), said he took the decision to "make space to prevent chaos".

The 35-year-old conservative said in a televised media statement "we need stability," adding it would be "irresponsible" to allow Austria to "slide into months of chaos or gridlock" while the EU member fights the pandemic.

Greens leader and Vice Chancellor Werner Kogler indicated he was satisfied, meaning Mr Kurz had succeeded in pulling their coalition back from the brink.

A star among Europe's conservatives and known for his hard line on immigration, Mr Kurz, 35, became one of the continent's youngest leaders when he took over as chancellor in 2017 at the head of a coalition with the far-right Freedom Party.
