Vienna - Austria's resurgent far-right Freedom Party was the most popular choice among young voters in Sunday's parliamentary election, winning above-average support among those aged 30 or below, exit polls found. Immigration and law-and-order were the most important election issues for supporters of the Freedom Party and the Alliance for the Future of Austria, which together won some 29 per cent of the vote.
Among 30-and-below voters, 25 per cent said they voted for the Freedom Party....
VERONIKA OLEKSYN, "Far-right parties make big gains in Austrian vote."
VIENNA, Austria (AP) — Austria's far-right made huge gains in Sunday's parliamentary elections in a sign voters were disenchanted with the two main political parties which governed in a coalition for the past 18 months.
Many Austrians were frustrated by squabbling between the governing parties, who were viewed as ineffective and distracted from public concerns over rising inflation and other problems. Analysts said the result was not necessarily a sign voters were becoming more extremist in their views.
"It's not a question of ideology," said political commentator Peter Filzmaier. "There's lots of disappointment among workers, and there are no left-oriented parties to pick up those votes and so the right-oriented parties are able to do so."
A total of 183 parliamentary seats were up for grabs. If preliminary results are confirmed, the right-wing Freedom Party will have 35 seats, up from 21 after the last elections in 2006. The Alliance for the Future of Austria, led by Joerg Haider, will have 21, up from seven.
The center-left Social Democrats and the conservative People's Party, which formed the governing alliance that collapsed in July, both made their worst showing since the end of World War II.
"[T]here are no left-oriented parties...."
That is as unbelievable as anything one can find in the MSM these days. As the established mainstream political parties continue to cling to their bell-bottom pants and love beads, and as they continue to chant mantras of peace, love, and multi-culti platitudes while the people are increasingly attacked financially and physically by the Death Hippies and their Muslim proxies, we will see a furthering of movement to the "right." It's called by most coming to ones senses and acting accordingly.
