MFG (with probably 6 mandates) will immediately move into three curiae of the Vienna Medical Association. The votes are distributed in the individual sections as follows: Employed doctors: 4th place, 7 percent, 3 mandates. Resident general practitioners: 2nd place, 13 percent, 2 mandates, specialists 4th place, 5 percent, 1 mandate. Overall, the result shows that many medical professionals are also fed up with the “Szekeres system”.

“We will now work to ensure that the medical association is there for us doctors again,” explains DDr. Christian Fiala from the MFG list of doctors in a first reaction. “We will work on the Szekeres system with our newly won opportunities. This includes, for example, the dubious purchase of a luxury property on Wiener Graben by ÄK. EUR 327.5 million (!) was paid here, although the market value of the property, according to the courier, is only EUR 189 million. A few days ago it was also announced that ÄK had paid two “intermediaries” EUR 900,000 in commission as part of this deal. Your performance according to the investigative platform dossier: You are said to have given the ÄK the tip over the phone that this property was for sale. There is said to have been no written agreement in advance. Article dossier: dossier today.
This cold pandemic can be voted out
For RA Dr. Michael Brunner, federal party chairman of the MFG, the result is another milestone in the history of the young party. “The population has absolutely no more understanding for the Corona measures. Although everyone – vaccinated or unvaccinated – is infected with omicron and largely has a mild course, the restrictions and scaremongering continue. In any case, this cold pandemic can be deselected.„
Election without an election observer?
The MFG was only allowed to send one election observer. However, all 4 curiae were counted at the same time, which makes serious election observation impossible. The envelopes for the postal vote were already delivered to the ÄK by post on Friday and kept in a room. These were then counted on Saturday with the votes cast on site. A transparent procedure for the safekeeping of the envelopes could not be specified by MA 40 of the Municipality of Vienna (as the responsible election commission) despite inquiries. Not even who has access to these premises. MFG drew attention to these questionable circumstances in advance – unfortunately without result. It was also strange that the ÄK announced that they wanted to donate EUR 10 to refugees from the Ukraine for every vote cast. This could have resulted in asymmetrical voter mobilization. The MFG lawyers are now examining the general legality of this ballot.
