Only three presidential candidates are currently considered trustworthy by the Austrians. This finding is shown by the current APA / OGM confidence index, where only Alexander Van der Bellen (Greens), Rudolf Hundstorfer (SPÖ) and Irmgard Griss achieved positive values. Richard Lugner brings up the rear behind Andreas Khol (ÖVP). Norbert Hofer (FPÖ) also ended up in the red.

“Do you trust politician XY or don’t trust him” is the question asked by the 500 participants in the online survey. The index value results from the balance of the answers. The fluctuation range is a maximum of 4.5 points.

This means that Van der Bellen with plus 13, Hundstorfer with plus eleven and Griss with plus eight points are very close together. The minus of six points for Hofer is clear. For Andreas Khol minus 14 points were determined, Lugner is very deep in negative territory with minus 53 points. Lugner announced his intention to run for office on February 10, with the poll conducted on February 9 and 10.

Awadalla and Marshal too unknown

The results for the independent left-wing Elfriede Awadalla, for whom minus nine points were reported, and for the head of the EU exit party Rudolf Marschall, with minus seven points, should be carefully assessed. Because their level of awareness is so low that the trustworthiness value cannot be as high – or low – as it is with Lugner, emphasizes Karin Cvrtila from OGM. 93 percent of those questioned had no opinion on Marschall, 79 percent of those questioned had no idea about Awadalla.help me write my argumentative essay

But for Hofer and Griss, too, “awareness could still be greatly expanded,” said Cvrtila. More than 50 percent of the survey participants did not know the two or did not provide any information. Therefore, “the approval ratings could also change significantly in the course of the election campaign”. None of the applicants for his successor comes close to the longstanding record trust values ​​of the incumbent Federal President Heinz Fischer. “Such values ​​are only conceivable after years of widely accepted office and by no means in an election campaign situation,” says Cvrtila.

People want to be lied to. An ore green, whose blood is even green, who has been nominated by the Greens and also takes the Greens’ money for his election campaign, poses as a “neutral” candidate. You can laugh out loud and long. Whoever falls for him should do it. The only bad thing is that everyone else – if he does – have to endure him too!

In this case, in my opinion, they see it very clearly and correctly. The only question is whether one does not have to choose between plague or cholera in the entire league of candidates.

The FPÖ plans to spend around two million euros on the election campaign of Federal Presidential candidate Norbert Hofer. Hofer showed himself to be very motivated for the runoff election in the Ö1 “Journal zu Gast” on Saturday, but would generally – assuming a referendum – combine the office of Federal President and that of Chancellor. Hofer also thinks it is possible that there will be new elections in autumn.

“I am very, very hungry for the runoff election,” stressed Hofer after his nomination on Thursday and was pleased with the numerous reactions from the population. The third President of the National Council admitted in an interview that he considers the model in France to be a good one and that the offices of Federal President and Federal Chancellor would merge. Before such a change, however, the population would have to be asked, said Hofer.

Hofer is currently also deputy federal party leader – unlike that of the third president of the National Council, he will not be able to exercise this function in the next few weeks of the election campaign. Speaking of the election campaign, as announced, Hofer wants to complete this primarily via social media and media appointments. There will also be house calls, but these will be carried out by the local blue groups.

The election campaign costs

The election campaign costs are set at two million euros, because it is possible that national elections will take place in the autumn. Hofer said that if a candidate from the governing parties did poorly, the rifts in the federal government would become even bigger. In any case, the Freedom Party would be “armed” for an election. It also fits that Hofer is involved in the development of a government program: “You have to be well prepared for negotiations.”

Neutrality issue

On the subject of neutrality, the presidential candidate said that if this could be converted into freedom of association, he would insist on a referendum. As the supreme commander of the armed forces, he would advocate that the military be properly equipped, because it is “negligent” to starve it out for years. He currently does not consider a longer basic military service to be necessary, but this is possible in special situations. He would remain an honorary member of the beating Marko-Germania fraternity as head of state.

The FPÖ and all its sympathizers here are always chalking the other parties for not being neutral, but if the FPÖ candidate even says publicly that he is a liberal president, then everything is fine. Typically for the FPÖ – they turn like a flag in the wind. Also very reassuring when a Federal President belongs to a right-wing fraternity – I have no words.

Mayor and SPÖ federal party leader Michael Häupl shouted extremely sharply on Saturday from Hofer’s statements about a possible ministerial office for Vienna’s regional councilor Sonja Wehsely: “Hofer’s approach cannot be surpassed in wickedness,” he noted. In view of the government’s “dismissal fantasies”, Häupl accuses Hofer of “bluntly marching in the direction of the presidential dictatorship”.

“Hofer’s understanding of office is frightening every day,” said Häupl in a broadcast on the FPÖ presidential candidate’s comment that he was “not sure” to what extent Wehsely was – and would be – involved in the “scandal surrounding Islamic kindergartens” in Vienna She, if he were President, would not swear to her as minister before clarification.

“Hofer’s approach is unbeatable in terms of malice.”

Häupl sees it as “typical FPÖ policy, when rumors are first launched in order to then use them politically” – and Hofer practices this “himself as a candidate for the highest office in the state”. Wehsely’s work as a social councilor was “impeccable” – but Hofer wanted to “patch up” it because it “didn’t seem opportune” to him. “This man cannot be elected! There is a risk of abuse of power and unstable to chaotic conditions,” emphasized Häupl.

“This man cannot be elected!”

Strache defends Hofer

FPÖ boss Strache reiterated the skepticism expressed by Hofer about a possible swearing-in of the Vienna Social Councilor Sonja Wehsely as SPÖ minister: This was “extremely controversial” – and it was “not a rumor that she faced her responsibility in the scandal surrounding the Islamic kindergartens runs away but sad reality “. Strache called Michael Häupl’s ruffian in matters of Wehsely an “abstruse attack”.

General Secretary Herbert Kickl was also indignant about Van der Bellen’s interview statements – and also about the election call by earlier and active ÖVP politicians for the Greens. “The disparagement of the competitor is unworthy of a presidential candidate,” said Kickl. He sees Van der Bellen tipped back more and more “into the hysterical behavior patterns of his green home”. The i.a. supported by three ex-party leaders, OeNB boss Claus Raidl and EU delegation leader Othmar Karas

civil appeal to vote for Van der Bellen

mocked Kickl as an “election call of failed ÖVP members”. Van der Bellen would, in Kickl’s opinion, be an “ideal lifespan of a system that people like Busek, Molterer and Fischler were responsible for driving against the wall”.

Hofburg candidates commented on the SPÖ personnel change

The Hofburg candidates have Friday at a discussion event of the federal state newspapers and the “press” in Graz

SPÖ personnel change

commented. FPÖ candidate Norbert Hofer showed skepticism about a possible change of the Vienna State Social Councilor Sonja Wehsely to the federal government. Alexander Van der Bellen (Greens) puts hope in a chancellor from the economy.

Hofer said he would be “very careful” about a swearing-in by Wehsely – at least until it was clarified who was responsible for the “scandal surrounding Islamic kindergartens” in Vienna. Because he is “not sure” to what extent Wehsely is “involved” in it. Hofer will of course, even if he wins the runoff election, not be embarrassed to praise the new SPÖ government members. Because the new Federal President himself will not be sworn in until July 8th, until then Heinz Fischer will be in office.

In addition, the

new Federal Chancellor and SPÖ leader Christian Kern

will not present his government team until the end of next week. Wehsely’s move has so far only been the subject of speculation. For the time being, Hofer showed no reservations about Kern: One “can wish” that the reorganization of the SPÖ would give more momentum to government work. But if “there is still a dispute in six months” and the fronts in the coalition harden further, he would want to dismiss the government.

Without any threatening gesture, Van der Bellen replied: He hopes that red and black will no longer indulge in the “hara-kiri, but show what they can” until the 2018 election – in their interests and in Austria’s interests. But he stated that it will “not be easy” for Kern. And reminded them that in the past you had got off well with “business people”. The period under Chancellor Franz Vranitzky (SPÖ) was “one of the most successful in Austria”.

Speculation about government team

Who will be part of the government team under the new Chancellor and SPÖ leader Christian Kern – he will be sworn in on Tuesday – was not yet known on Saturday.
