Austria: Sebastian Kurz Announces Coalition Deal with Green Party

Leader of the conservative Austrian People’s Party (ÖVP) Sebastian Kurz has announced a coalition agreement with the Green Party that will see several green policies but no changes to migration policy.

Mr Kurz, along with Green Party leader Werner Kogler presented their new government programme at a joint press conference on Thursday, with Kurz claiming the new government would be “the best of both worlds” and that its priorities would be tax reform and fighting illegal immigration, Kronen Zeitung reports.

The ÖVP leader added that both parties had also agreed to ban the Islamic headscarf for children under the age of 14 and would be expanding programmes to teach new migrants the German language and put more emphasis on getting asylum seekers into the labour force.

Kurz has been critical of migration policies within the European Union since forming the previous government with the populist Freedom Party.
