“If I hadn’t said yes, I would have regretted it five minutes later.”

Kurz’s call came as a surprise to Taschner and convinced him: “When, if not now. I know for sure that if I hadn’t said yes, I would certainly have regretted it five minutes later.” The time is now exactly right, especially as society is experiencing a change. In a nutshell, Taschner now sees someone with the qualities he expects from a politician: “A sense of responsibility, courage and foresight”.

Would Taschner have accepted if Kern called?

“I would have been annoyed if I hadn’t said yes. Thanks for the offer. I was happy to take it and I’m happy to be able to make my small contribution here.” When asked whether he would have accepted a call from SPÖ boss Christian Kern, Taschner said: “I think it was right that I (in short, note) said yes to him.” A place in the next government as science minister had not been discussed, this was also confirmed by Kurz.

In general, it is now not a question of assigning ministries. First of all, the voters will have their say and after October 15 the strongest party will be commissioned to negotiate the government, according to the ÖVP boss. He also commented briefly on the announced withdrawal of Family Minister Sophie Karmasin (ÖVP): “I appreciate her and have worked well with her.” He respects your step, said Kurz.

The SPÖ has sharply criticized Sebastian Kurz’s cancellation of the first media meeting with SPÖ boss Christian Kern on Friday evening. The ÖVP boss seems to be afraid of the substantive dispute with Kern, said SPÖ Federal Managing Director Georg Niedermühlbichler in a broadcast on Friday evening.

“If you have no idea where you want to go with the country, then an hour can be a damn long time”, Niedermühlbichler railed against Kurz. The reason given for the cancellation – an informal EU Foreign Ministers’ Council in Estonia on September 7th – was described by Niedermühlbichler as a lazy excuse: “In the evening there will be discussions, the next day at noon the EU Council will start.www123 If you want, it can be done. “

An ÖVP spokesman told the APA that Kurz, as the coordinator of the EPP foreign ministers, was already leading a meeting of the EPP ministers in the run-up to the council meeting and was also holding bilateral talks with counterparts in Tallinn, which is why he was in Estonia on September 6th Capital is located. The ÖVP points out that Kurz will discuss with Kern at least five times on television, two of them in a two-way confrontation, first on Pulse 4, then on ORF television.

“Kurz is looking forward to the five previously fixed direct encounters with Kern and is happy to discuss a sixth or seventh time with him. We ask for your understanding that we do not rely solely on the SPÖ party headquarters when making appointments, but also on the dates of the EU Foreign Ministers Council must take into account, “said the ÖVP spokesman.

ÖVP top candidate and Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz had previously canceled the radio duel on “Ö1”. An alternative date could not be found by the Foreign Minister’s office, said Ö1. In the series “Im Klartext”, Kurz should have discussed with Kern on September 6th. The public TV duel between the two does not take place until a good month later – four days before

National Council election

I am really surprised that “informal appointments” on AM topics are more important to Mr. Kurz than the Austrian NR election …: -O

Well, it’s not surprising, if you don’t have any content, you can’t have a content-related discussion, the topic of route closing doesn’t fill the entire evening and dropping us off to introduce us to any lateral entrants whose common qualification is not to have been black, not a program. His strategy is the one that some political experts have already foreseen, he will not be open to attack and he will never comment on anything for as long as possible, otherwise his image will be disenchanted and it will plop down. Is like an official micado, if he moves he loses

The former presidential candidate and long-time Lower Austria boss of the FPÖ, Barbara Rosenkranz, will be on the list of Karl Schnell, a Salzburg resident who was excluded from the FPÖ in 2015. Rosenkranz left the FPÖ today, Monday. For the “Free List Austria” she will be the top candidate in Lower Austria, Schnell said in a press conference.

Rosenkranz justified her departure from the FPÖ after 28 years with the fact that the “alienation had already progressed so far” that “a separation was inevitable”. Now she dare to “jump into the deep end”. In any case, Rosenkranz’s parliamentary career would have ended at the FPÖ: There she was no longer intended for a list, announced General Secretary Herbert Kickl.

The mother of ten, who belonged to the right wing of the FPÖ, resigned in 2013 after the election failure as Lower Austria boss – which she was for ten years. In autumn 2016, she returned to the National Council, to which she first entered in 2002 under black and blue – after nine years as a Lower Austrian state parliament mandate.

Rosenkranz was considered a “steadfast blue”, after all in 2006, after the BZÖ split off, it held out for weeks as the last blue bastion in the orange club; At the time, she was the only one of the 183 MPs to vote against the EU Treaty of Lisbon. In 2010, her steadfastness was rewarded with the presidential candidacy. As the opposing candidate of Heinz Fischer, Rosenkranz came – who stood out in the election campaign with critical comments on the prohibition law – but only 15.24 percent, the worst result of all FPÖ Hofburg candidates.

The biochemist Renee Schroeder and the computer scientist Hannes Werthner are running for the National Council election on Peter Pilz’s list. On Friday, the ex-Greens presented the two as representatives for research and science. He promised the two of them “completely secure mandates”. Pilz plans to present the finished lists next week.

Schroeder, scientist of the year 2002 and winner of the Wittgenstein Prize 2003, was a school colleague of Peter Pilz. In the federal presidential election campaign she was a supporter of Alexander Van der Bellen. In politics, she wants to set up more money for basic research, as she emphasized.

Werthner underlined the importance of digital transformation. Here you should intervene and help shape it. As dean of computer science at the Vienna University of Technology, he wants to step down if he makes it into parliament. Schroeder referred to her upcoming retirement in the coming year.

Lists should be ready next week

Pilz announced that the federal and state lists of his movement should be ready next week, probably on Wednesday. He reserved further candidate presentations and was confident: “We are now firmly assuming that we will move into the National Council as a list.”

Pilz was open to the debate on cutting high politicians’ pensions, which was pushed by the outgoing Green Party Karl Öllinger. He tried to excuse the fact that he was entitled to one himself. He has been a mandate for so long that, for constitutional reasons, he cannot choose: “I personally did not choose it.”

The NEOS can not be stopped by record heat: Beyond the 30-degree mark, they began their summer tour in Vienna before the National Council election. Party leader Matthias Strolz wants to “get in touch with the citizens”, as he said at the start in front of the Museum Quarter. The in-house ensemble “Wahl Freiheit” provided the soundtrack with the song “Summa Sun” by folkshilfe.

A “car of the future” will bring the NEOS content to the citizens in the coming weeks – and also pick up new ones. Because citizens should also – if Strolz goes – bring ideas to the summer tour and thus help shape the party’s program. One means of doing this is a “budget game”, in which funds from the state budget can be allocated to topics. Strolz calls it an “invitation to get involved”.

“An invitation to get involved”

The pink summer tour is officially organized by its own political academy, the NEOSLab. “We have brought political education to the streets,” said its head of training and further education, Paul Angeli. Until the official election campaign of the parties, the NEOS will stay on the streets: After a number of meetings in Vienna and the federal states, the tour will end again on September 8th in the federal capital.

“This is a bit of a call for petty criminals”

Strolz also commented on the content of the competition at the start of the tour. It is gratifying that the SPÖ – in contrast to other parties – has now presented an election program. In terms of content, however, they are not in agreement on many points, such as continuing the “debt rate”. And the NEOS top candidate cannot do anything with the SPÖ motto (“I get what I am entitled to”): “This is a bit of a call for petty criminals.”

On Wednesday, the Greens called for the rules for campaign donations to be tightened. Club chairman Albert Steinhauser wants (also with reference to the current “crowdfunding” by ÖVP chairman Sebastian Kurz) on the one hand a general ban on corporate donations, on the other hand private donations should be limited – to 10,000 euros per person and calendar year.

In connection with the campaign donations, Steinhauser spoke of an impending “Americanization” of the campaigns. There, for example, pharmaceutical companies paid donations in the last presidential election campaign and after that the issue of reducing the cost of drugs disappeared, said the MP.

In Austria, Steinhauser has the ÖVP in his sights: Sebastian Kurz has proclaimed a “system of fighting donations” – he is doing it “quite publicly, but he collects large monetary donations from external sponsors. That is not illegal, but it is also not without consequences”, so the club chairman. Because: “This leads to a system of merging political decisions and economic interests of the sponsors.” Steinhauser pointed out that of the 1 million euros in donations that the ÖVP has collected so far, 70 percent come from donors who have donated more than 10,000 euros – and these 70 percent would come from only 18 donors, including nine companies and nine private individuals with an entrepreneurial background.

In addition to the points mentioned, the Greens also advocate that in the future personal committees and development associations should be fully assigned to a party and fall under the rules for campaign financing. At the moment, such “bypassing structures” would undermine the rules (for example for the upper cost limits, note), according to Steinhauser. In addition, there should be the possibility of direct audits of parties by the Court of Auditors, and the criminal law provisions in the event of violations should be based on the regulations in Germany.

Green mandate Dieter Brosz also demanded that clearer rules be needed in the financial assessment of donations in kind: For example, an advertisement or poster paid for by the parliamentary club must be considered a donation to the respective party; Currently, such a donation does not fall under the election campaign cost limit. In addition, the law needs clarification that not only “incorrect or incomplete” reports by the parties on the donations lead to sanctions, but also the lack of a report – because the latter is currently not rated as “incomplete”.
