Nehammer follows Kurz – is he also replacing Schallenberg as Chancellor?
Ex-Chancellor Sebastian Kurz announced his resignation as ÖVP party leader and club chairman. Interior Minister Nehammer is to succeed him. The shock waves of the political quake are already spreading across domestic politics. The carousel begins to spin.
It is very likely that Interior Minister Karl Nehammer Kurz will follow as party leader. And Nehammer is also supposed to replace Alexander Schallenberg as Federal Chancellor, who in this case would probably move back to the Foreign Office.
