The changing face of Europe
Following the financial crisis and the migration crisis something is happening in Europe what the major political parties try to play down, but nevertheless is happening: citizens are losing trust in major political parties. This is seen now in the head on head race for the presidental vote in Austria:
Austria is faced with a stark choice for its head of state: a Green Party professor, Alexander Van der Bellen, or Norbert Hofer of the far-right Freedom Party - a soft-spoken, charismatic gun enthusiast who won a decisive victory in the first round of voting in April.
For the first time since the Second World War, the traditional parties of the centre left and centre right were knocked out of the race.
At the moment the outcome is 50:50
The outcome will be decided tomorrow by the expats voting :-)))
