A black-blue coalition will call the shots in the state of Salzburg for the next five years. This means that the Liberals already rule in three out of nine federal states and thus more than 42 percent of the Austrian population (see graphic).
Salzburg’s governor Wilfried Haslauer (ÖVP) and his future deputy Marlene Svazek (FPÖ) presented their agreement on Friday. This is introduced with a preamble in which the country’s “cosmopolitanism and open-mindedness” are laid down. Demonstration announced for Monday percent done. Svazek will also take over the integration area. A demonstration against the coalition has been announced for Whit Monday in the state capital. “Give this government a chance” Haslauer described finding a government as “difficult” and he asked the population to “give it a chance”. It is of course questionable whether he will stay until the end of the legislative period. Haslauer emphasizes again and again that this is “the plan”. It has been rumored for a long time that he could hand over the scepter after his 70th birthday in three years. Political scientist: black-blue no surprise For the political scientist Peter Filzmaier the “coalition between a centre-right party and a right-wing party is no surprise “. Rather, it is astonishing that this was denied in advance both in Salzburg and in Lower Austria, said Filzmaier of the “Krone”.
