Two weeks before the Hofburg elections, incumbent Alexander Van der Bellen presented the second and final wave of posters for his reelection campaign on Friday. In two of the four motifs, the Federal President presents himself as a state figure in front of a red-white-red background.
“Vote Van der Bellen!” exclaims a motif showing the incumbent official on a red-white-red background. The 78-year-old can also be seen in front of a red-white-red background on the topic “The safe choice in stormy times”. The incumbent said he was the best choice because you know him best and how he reacts in certain situations. In recent years he has proved “that I think red-white-red”, the former leader of the Greens also advertised his independence.
Van der Bellen wants to “create clarity on 9 October” on all four posters. This is primarily intended to underline the goal of achieving an absolute majority in the first ballot and avoiding a second round.
Van der Bellen and the Tyrolean Mountains
The poster with the motto “Together we are stronger” shows Van der Bellen talking to a woman. The inflation crisis must be solved together and no one should be left alone, Van der Bellen emphasized. “Because it depends” is another slogan, with the Tyrolean mountains in the background, as with the first wave of billboards – Van der Bellen emphasized that it does not matter who becomes the next Federal President.
