Rumors intensify – Van der Bellen wants to participate in BP election again

According to information from “Krone”, Federal President Alexander Van der Bellen wants to participate again in the autumn elections. It will be officially announced on Sunday. A cryptic TikTok video recently sparked re-election rumors.

It had already been assumed that the 78-year-old president would want to serve another term, because he did not seem tired of his office. After the video was published on Thursday, it was still unclear whether Van der Bellen had made a decision. But now it must be solved: in the autumn elections – the exact date has not yet been determined – he wants to be on the ballot again.

The question now is how the other parties will react: VP and SPÖ have indicated that they will not nominate their own candidates if the incumbent is again a candidate. The FPÖ certainly wants to try again to capture the Hofburg. With which applicant is not yet clear. Van der Bellen’s free competitor from 2016, Norbert Hofer, would not run if Van der Bellen wanted a second term.
