Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen will now have to appoint a chancellor able to gain parliament’s support until the next general election. Austrian lawmakers from the Social Democrats and the right-wing Freedom Party have 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. “The National Assembly has withdrawn its confidence from the entire government for the first time in the Second Republic”, the parliament’s Twitter account read.
