Austrian Government Faces Vote of No Confidence After Ibiza Scandal Mass Resignations

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz is now facing a potential vote of non-confidence from the populist Freedom Party (FPÖ) after a wave of resignations following the firing of Interior Minister Herbert Kickl.

The rumours of a potential non-confidence vote were initially denied by a spokesman for the FPÖ but new party leader and former presidential candidate Norbert Hofer has left the possibility on the table saying,

“As far as I’ve heard, other parties in Parliament could bring in a motion of censure – we are not planning that.

And we would have to consider whether we would agree to such an application,” Kronen Zeitung reports.

The vote, which could see Mr Kurz toppled as Austrian Chancellor, comes after populist  Interior Minister Herbert Kickl was fired from his post on Monday with all of the remaining Freedom Party ministers quitting their posts soon after.
