With the public transport to the oath: the new health minister came by tram
His predecessor came in sneakers, he himself with the streetcar. The green next tenant of Wolfgang Mückstein in the Ministry of Health, Johannes Rauch (62), traveled to the Hofburg by public transport. He didn’t forget the FFP2 mask.
Since today, the Vorarlberger Rauch has been the focus of the corona pandemic. For the swearing-in ceremony with Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen, he traveled – befitting a Green – by tram. Of course, the new Minister of Health had not forgotten the FFP2 mask either.
Swearing in when Van der Bellen had a cold
Still audibly struck, but free of corona, Alexander Van der Bellen appointed tram driver Johannes Rauch Federal Minister for Social Affairs and Health in the Hofburg.
For Rauch, the swearing-in was just the beginning of an eventful day. In the afternoon it was about introducing yourself to the National Council. Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine will also be debated at a special session in Parliament’s alternative quarters. As in the previous plenary week, the Chancellor and Vice-Chancellor are making statements on the conflict.
