Sebastian Kurz announces his complete retirement from the political stage. Now it is final, the eXXpress heard from close confidants of the ex-Chancellor: Sebastian Kurz (35) no longer wants to do “that” to himself – he would have had enough of the allegations, the reports to the public prosecutor, of the lousy attacks by certain opposition politicians – the ex-chancellor wants to withdraw into private life. He announced his motives at a press conference.
“I can look back on 10 years of political activity”, says Kurz, “extremely grateful”. But he also finds critical tones: “As Federal Chancellor you have so many decisions to make every day that you know in the morning that you will also make wrong decisions. You are always under observation. In addition, you always have the feeling that you are being hunted. ”But this feeling was also good for him. It always motivated his team to perform at their best.
“I made wrong decisions. I have often lived up to my own standards. But I am neither a saint nor a criminal. I am a person with mistakes and weaknesses, with everything that goes with them. And I’m looking forward to the day when I can prove in court that the allegations against me are wrong, ”continued an emotional short, who did not make the decision to resign easily.
