The reason for the video conference is much simpler and, according to Hörl, has nothing to do with the investigation into the advertising affair: “This is due to Corona,” he said at TT. And he makes it clear: “As long as I am chairman of the Federal Economic Union, the federal party chairman can be sure of one hundred percent support of the Federal Economic Association.” For Hörl it is certain that Kurz should be the top candidate of the ÖVP again in new elections: “That would be my wish.”
The former Chancellor also receives support from the Young ÖVP in Tyrol. Chairwoman Sophia Kirchler is convinced that there is nothing criminally wrong with the allegations. “Sebastian Kurz has proven that he can be Chancellor.” When the investigation is over, he can return to the Chancellery at any time.
