During a press conference, ÖVP Secretary General Christian Stocker worked on new SPÖ boss Andreas Babler. Criticism of the mayor of Traiskirchen also comes from the government district of St. Pölten. Why Governor Johanna Mikl-Leitner is concerned about the new SPÖ course and warns of a “nightmare”.
In hardly any other state, the new SPÖ boss Andreas Babler faces more opposition than in his own. As reported, the blue-yellow (and nominally second-largest) national group has preferred to back Hans Peter Doskosil in recent weeks. When Babler became party chairman a second later, the first dismissals from the party were not long in coming. The new SPÖ boss is not only a red flag for many comrades – two ÖVP grandees also attack their compatriot head-on.
