Just Mr. In short, the ÖVP is spending huge amounts of money, including taxpayers’ money, in order to annoy people with unnecessary posters and the like. You should sweep in front of your own door, patting others is a great distraction, but it doesn’t make them any more personable.

Whether Kern, Kurz or Strache – a lousy pack. NOBODY can be chosen in this banana republic.

Today the FPÖ presented its second wave of posters for the

National Council election 2017.

„Austrians deserve fairness” is the FPÖ’s motto in this election campaign. The first wave of posters with swipes at the grand coalition and well-known demands turned out to be rather tame. „Islamization should be stopped,” read a poster from the second wave.

in the

Ö1 duel between Strache and Chancellor Kern

said the FPÖ boss – when asked about the relatively unexcited posters – that that was not all. Among other things, a poster was presented on which Strache and ÖVP boss Sebastian Kurz can be seen: In addition to the black and white likeness of Kurz, his quote (from 2015) can be read: „Islam belongs to Austria”. Strache – in color and a lot bigger – proclaims from the poster: „Islamization should be stopped”.

In its second wave of posters, the FPÖ also wants to denounce the “boncentre” in the SPÖ. Federal Chancellor Christian Kern is also part of the new subjects.

word agains word

„Fairness” remains the central motif of the blue posters, explained General Secretary Herbert Kickl at a press conference on Friday. In this second of three planned waves with a good 4,400 pieces, party leader Heinz-Christian Strache’s likeness will be posted. Specifically, statements – and politicians – are juxtaposed on each of the three different subjects: Kern and Kurz together in black and white in the background – in Kickl’s view, „the ‚dark side of power’ is formulated somewhat pathetically” „- Strache is the” hope „of many Austrians told that the country would be restructured. The red-black coalition does not solve any big problems, it „IS the biggest problem”, you can read.

It shows the „failure” of the SPÖ-ÖVP government, said Strache. Several times Strache tried the new blue election campaign term of the „fairness crisis”, for which the SPÖ and ÖVP are responsible – whether in terms of border protection, taxes, pensions, social benefits for „asylum seekers” or women’s rights.123help Once again, Strache and Kickl expressed their fear that the red-black liaison should continue after the election.

Gusenbauer reappears

For each of the governing parties, the blues have their own motif: On one of them, the FPÖ quotes the red election slogan „Get what you are entitled to” with Kern and Gusenbauer as a „symbol” for the current SPÖ, as Kickl explains. The SPÖ has long since ceased to represent the little man, Strache also found, but the SPÖ boss is with „you and you, predator capitalists” – „whoever chooses Kern gets Gusi,” Strache believes. „We give you back what YOU take,” promises the blue poster. Kickl complained about a „completely unfair distribution system” that primarily requires a „redistribution from foreigners to Austrians”.

With the third motif, which Kurz shows with his statement „Islam belongs to Austria”, one is „at the center of the failure of the Minister of Integration”, explained Kickl. „Islamization should be stopped,” countered the FPÖ. Briefly, he even promoted Islamization, he „rolled out the carpet for Islam,” rumbled Kickl. „Islam does not belong to Austria and Islamism must be prevented,” Strache did not shy away from mixing religion and extremism. Strache also dubbed the ÖVP boss a „runaway candidate” because he was „the candidate who doesn’t dare” to enter into a discussion with the others.

„It was a wonderful election campaign. I really enjoyed it,” said list founder Pilz, flanked by his colleagues in front of the parliament on the Vienna Ring. „I have a good feeling,” said the former Green optimistically that he will make the leap to the National Council.

Pilz sees his list as a „basis for something new and an alternative for upcoming elections”. The election on Sunday is a start „for a big, political alternative” because the SPÖ will not do it and „the Greens cannot”. He also compared himself a bit with the legendary SPÖ Chancellor Bruno Kreisky. The situation today is the same as in the 1966 election when the population helped the ÖVP to a sole government and voted it out four years later. Only then did an era of change begin. This is roughly how Pilz imagines the history of his list. In fact, it is „the greatest and best team I have worked with in 31 years of parliament”.

„I want to show how politics works differently”

The long-time parliamentarian positioned himself once more as a strict controller. In the face of a threatened black and blue government, „control will be even more important than before”. Pilz also emphasized that his list had led the cheapest election campaign of all time with just one poster and not a single advertisement. Pilz declined a spontaneous donation of 50 euros made by a supporter during the speech. You don’t have to burn millions of euros, ideas are enough. „I want to show how politics works differently.” His list stands for justice, freedom, the defense of „our values” and control, said Pilz.

Elections will take place on October 15th It will be a three-way battle between Kern, Kurz and Strache. It is questionable whether the head of the Freedom Party can win in this constellation. That is why he calls ÖVP opponent Sebastian Kurz as a precautionary Karl-Heinz-Grasser replacement.

You changed your outfit. Striking black glasses, sophisticated tone. You have the most experience in the match with core and short. On the one hand you want to stand for the change, on the other hand you are already an establishment. How do you want to perform? We are not an establishment …

But you’ve been the FPÖ boss for a long time. I think it’s about what the establishment is. For me, these are outdated political power structures in this country. These are SPÖ and ÖVP. We have come up to break it up in terms of democratic politics. I think that the question is never how young or how old someone is, these are irrelevant. What matters is how honest, authentic and dynamic you approach the matter. With maturity and experience it will usually get even better.

And the glasses? Is a necessity when eyesight is deteriorating. I have astigmatism, an astigmatism, and unfortunately it has gotten worse. And at some point it no longer works without glasses. Of course, it took some getting used to at the beginning. Suddenly you can see really clearly.

Keyword sharp. You also have a few sharp topics … I would say clearly.

Hard issues. It seems that Sebastian Kurz took away the issue of foreigners from you. On the contrary.

Are you actually satisfied with the content now? He didn’t take anything away from me. In his more than six years of government responsibility, he is largely responsible for the massive undesirable developments. He is the longest serving member of the ÖVP government who was there everywhere and approved everywhere.

But voters do not attribute the closure of the West Balkan route to the FPÖ, but to Sebastian Kurz. Believe me, the population certainly does not attribute that to Kurz, but to Orbán. Briefly, when Merkel proclaimed the irresponsible welcoming culture, he said that we need a more welcoming culture and that Islam is part of Austria, which is not the case.

„There is a chance that we can improve significantly from third place.”

But you have to admit, Kurz’s polls are great. Let’s look at the result. I am convinced that the FPÖ has every reason to go into the election with confidence and that we can increase significantly from the 20 percent we had the last time. There is a chance that we can improve significantly from third place.

Are you counting on number one? That would be a miracle.

There were times when it was almost certain that you would come first in elections. No. These images try to build the media.

So 22 percent would be a success? A humble one. The demand is bigger. At least 25 percent should be there.

It is currently at least likely that the FPÖ is in the next government, which partner would you prefer – the SPÖ under Kern or the ÖVP under Kurz? I have to contradict the beginning of the question, because one cannot speak of probability. We know this scenario of red and black arguing and that the ÖVP is the demolition master of governments, but it is quite likely and it is to be feared that they will then pull themselves together again. That’s why we also say that only with the FPÖ will it be possible to overcome this scenario.

But then you need a political partner. Who would you prefer? We have an absolute equidistance there. If the SPÖ and ÖVP should be punished, there might be a chance for a historic window. That is the yardstick: Who is ready to implement the necessary content for Austria with us? We are not available for only one color to be exchanged and for everything to continue as before.

Kurz is also very successful on Facebook – that was your domain for a long time. Do you feel threatened? Not at all. I am not afraid of anyone. On the contrary, it is a nice, exciting competition to be able to inform people directly outside of the censorship. When you are foreign minister, liking is easier than with an opposition politician who is often vilified. When I read things about myself in the newspapers, I get scared of myself.

Do you need an image change? When you are portrayed so negatively in the media … you have been.

Has that changed? I can already see that one essentially acts with mutual respect. That was not always so.

© Ricardo Herrgott

But how you deal it against Kurz, is that respectful? I believe that when it comes to politically justified criticism, that is necessary.

Even in such drastic terms? Which do you mean?

You recently called him unscrupulous and dishonest. The way the battering ram Sobotka has apparently been sent forward to dismantle Mitterlehner since last year, that was certainly not a nice process, at least intriguing. Now you can argue about the terminology, whether you use stronger or weaker ones, but I don’t think anyone likes this approach. Today we see two old parties that are controlled by old politicians in the background. At the SPÖ, it was Gusenbauer who supported Kern and helped to depose Faymann. And at the ÖVP, Schüssel and Pröll helped dismantle Mitterlehner and set up Kurz to replace Grasser. In truth, these are puppets made by old politicians.

How can you imagine the election campaign conflict: Do you have to be particularly aggressive in order to differentiate yourself from Kurz? I don’t need to delimit myself. I just need to make the difference visible, that the one in the government has full responsibility and is therefore not credible. But that’s not just the issue. This is also the economic competence of this government, which has slipped completely through a completely wrong tax policy and bureaucratic measures, as a result of which many companies are leaving and unemployment has risen sharply in recent years.

But economic growth has improved over the past six years and the unemployment rate has fallen slightly. For twelve years it has been known that the FPÖ stands for two great things: on the one hand against foreigners, on the other hand against the grand coalition, which is no longer one anyway. Why have you not submitted an economic program in the last twelve years and do not want to do it until June? The economic program has been around for twelve years. It is currently being revised and then presented again. You also forgot a few key points. We are the home social party. As such, it is not for nothing that we have the strongest group of voters today, not only among employees, but among all service providers, including entrepreneurs and employees. That means that the voters already perceive that we are trusted to have economic competence, but of course also socio-political competence.

Business literacy is not attributed to you. Oh but. A lot of the population saw it that way. For example, that we want to reduce social security funds from twenty to two, that we want to abolish the compulsory chamber, that we want to reduce taxes and non-wage costs to the factor of labor. That we want to bring the tax rate below 40 percent. We have had a program for years that we are now making even more visible in a condensed form.

„You have to sift through and see which subsidies can no longer be justified”

You want to reduce this tax rate from 45.2 to 40 percent. How much will that cost? How are you going to finance that? This is exactly what we are working on in the program, we will also make a cost comparison, because it is also about Austria being the world champion in subsidies.
