Mayor Michael Ludwig has finally announced the election date for the Vienna state elections.
As a “Today” survey from the beginning of March shows that from today’s perspective there should be two winners, namely ÖVP and Greens. Despite the worst result ever, the SPÖ remains clearly ahead. The FPÖ crumbles, Strache makes its entry.
SPÖ remains first
In 2015 the SPÖ under Michael Häupl only came to 39.6 percent. Successor Michael Ludwig would lose even more and land on 36 percent. Finance Minister Gernot Blümel (ÖVP) would create 22 percent when he first started – an increase of almost 13 percent and the best result since 1987.
Heinz-Christian Strache had been a top FPÖ candidate in three Vienna elections since 2005, the result doubled from 14.8 percent to 30.8 percent. After Ibiza and under neo party leader Dominik Nepp, the FPÖ would be divided into three, would only come to 10 percent. And Strache like that? It is eagerly awaited how Heinz-Christian Strache will do with DAÖ. It should be enough to jump into the local council – 5% percent.
The government bonus apparently works for the Greens – in Vienna and in the federal government. With 19 percent, Vice Mayor Birgit Hebein would exceed the previous record (14.6 percent) in the capital. In 2015 Beate Meinl-Reisinger had been selected for the Neos. It reached 6.2 percent. Christoph Wiederkehr could hold this result. He still won’t make it to the government anyway.
