Stocker is a lawyer at his own law firm in Wiener Neustadt, where he has been Deputy Mayor for 22 years and has also been a member of the National Council since 2019. He is considered hardy and loyal to the line by the U-committee. Stocker is a member of the ÖVP Corruption Investigation Commission and the Judiciary Commission.
According to information from “Krone”, he will be announced on Friday as the successor to Sachslehner.
