After Tyrol’s result – “Black-Green voted out”: FPÖ calls for new elections


The elections in Tyrol have been defeated. But how will the outcome affect federal policy? FPÖ Secretary-General Christian Hafenecker sees a clear picture: “Black-Green has been voted out in Tyrol and of course the federal government has failed to do so.” He calls on both parties to step down and clear the way for new elections. Criticism of the federal government also comes from the ranks of the SPÖ and the NEOS. ÖVP Secretary General Christian Stocker sees things differently.

SPÖ’s federal manager, Christian Deutsch, attributed the losses of the ÖVP and the Greens to “arrogance and pride”.

Today’s election results show that no stone will be left unturned in Tyrol. “Black-Green has been voted out,” Deutsch said in an ORF panel discussion. While black-green had turned out to be a total failure, the red result was a “beautiful success in the knowledge that Tyrol is difficult terrain for the SPÖ”.

ÖVP General: “Remains the strongest force”
ÖVP Secretary General Christian Stocker, on the other hand, downplayed the ÖVP’s losses in Tyrol and put them in first place. “The People’s Party remains by far the strongest force in Tyrol, with a clear gap with all other parties.”

Top candidate Anton Mattle has set himself the goal of exceeding 30 percent and has clearly succeeded. SPÖ federal manager Christian Deutsch attributed the losses of the ÖVP and the Greens to arrogance and pride.

NEOS boss opens up to three-party coalition
NEOS party leader Beate Meinl-Reisinger, who was also present at the Innsbruck manor on Sunday evening, was still open to a three-party coalition in Tyrol. “The willingness is there,” she said. But she added: “The ball is in the hands of the ÖVP”. Meinl-Reisinger was convinced that top candidate Dominik Oberhofer would also enter into talks with ÖVP boss Anton Mattle. However, she described the Tyrolean result as a “clear plus”.

Greens see no government mandate in Tyrol
The Tyrolean Greens member of the National Council, Barbara Nessler, sees no government mandate for her party, but does not rule out joining a coalition in the state. Because her party has the greatest competence in the greatest crisis of all time, the climate crisis. She asked the other parties to keep their promise not to form a coalition with a “right-wing extremist” FPÖ.

Unsurprisingly, she was unhappy with the Greens’ result: “I expected more.” She sees a context with her party’s responsibility to government. These are difficult times and everyone wants quick solutions to complex issues.
