ÖVP boss and chancellor Karl Nehammer has appointed his “desired candidate”, MP Christian Stocker, as secretary general of the People’s Party. The 62-year-old lawyer comes from Wiener Neustadt in Lower Austria and has been a member of the National Council since 2019.
Stocker knows the party and its structures “from the inside out and is well connected in our state and sub-organizations,” Nehammer praised in a broadcast: “He will be the strong, level-headed and competent voice of the People’s Party.”
The ÖVP MP, who most recently gave the defense wall in the U committee along with VP faction leader Andreas Hanger, will lead the affairs of the People’s Party along with Alexander Proell, it was said.
“will set the course”
Nehammer was convinced that Stocker “would set the course for a future-proof, campaign-oriented and powerful people’s party”.
