disturbing poll result in austria

Sunday, September 28th, 2008

after the collapse of the grand coalition, austria has called an early election. according to deutsche welle, early results show that the 2 far right parties the freedom party and the alliance for austria’s future have combined captured 29% and according to bbc the number is 30% of the vote. it’s not enough to form a majority on their own, but one of these two parties could conceivably enter the government if all other options don’t pan out for the social democratic party. the center left, social democratic party, has won with 29% and the center right party has garnered 25% of the vote.
