Austria’s Kurz strikes deal to bring far right into government

austia-governmentVIENNA (Reuters) – Austrian conservatives led by Sebastian Kurz reached a coalition deal with the anti-immigration Freedom Party on Friday, paving the way for Austria to become the only western European country with a far-right party in government.

The agreement, two months after a parliamentary election dominated by Europe’s migration crisis, ends more than a decade in opposition for the Freedom Party (FPO), which last entered government in 2000 with the People’s Party (OVP) that Kurz now leads.

Kurz’s party won the Oct. 15 election with a hard line on immigration that often overlapped with the Freedom Party‘s. The FPO came third with 26 percent of the vote.

“We can inform you that there is a turquoise-blue agreement,” Kurz said in a joint statement to reporters with FPO leader Heinz-Christian Strache, referring to their two parties by their colours.

    The Austrians plan to keep their sovereignty instead of committing Nation Suicide like the rest of the EU nations have done, by their submitting to the George Soros financed Muslim invasion of Europe. Now, lets boot out the illegal’s and the Muslims here in America and save our Republic.
