He emphasized the achievements of his government, as they had stopped the "illegal Migration", as you have begun, a change in the country. After about four minutes it is, but seriously. Short declared that he must be able to withstand in the coalition with the FPÖ much have. The statements of the Vice-Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache on the recordings, but were now too much. "Enough is enough," says Short. He could no longer work together with the FPÖ, at the earliest possible date there should be new elections.
The Vice-Chancellor says, to avoid what
was Short, the consequences of an affair, raised in Austria, a quake, thus, aftershocks are included. Since the "Süddeutsche Zeitung" and "der Spiegel" on Friday at 18 o'clock, a Video public that shows the FPÖ-boss together with his political foster son of Johann Gudenus in the summer of 2017 on the island of Ibiza, where the two discussed an alleged Russian oligarchs-niece transactions on reciprocity, are all makes certainties waver. Strache and Gudenus survive this trap not once a day.
The Vice-Chancellor says at lunch time in his Ministry in the city of Vienna, what was not to be avoided - that he is retiring, as Vice-Chancellor and as party leader. "Out Of Responsibility."
On Straches long climb a steep, deep case, now follows. Waxen he acts, visibly beaten and exhausted, as he appears for the last Time in his Ministry in front of the white wall, on the "Vice-Chancellor" is. The time was short, but it was enough to here the inevitable departure of at least a double strategy to interpret: It comes to Excuse – and around the charges. Excuse Strache is doing for a "catastrophic and extremely embarrassing" appearance in the secretly recorded Video. "That was a b'soffene G'layer," he tries to explain, "a typical alcohol-induced macho posturing". The "attractive hostess", he says, he wanted to impress. "Teenage posturing", according to he pushes. Personally, he asks the Chancellor to apologise, then he turns directly to his wife: "Philippa, I'm truly sorry," he says. "I can understand that you're hurt and disappointed."
15'000 people demonstrate in Vienna
The voice is as fragile and in the eyes of tears. But in the next moment, he switches to part two of the strategy. He presents himself as the victim of sinister forces. Many intrigues he had already experienced, he explains, but this was not to exceed "of perfidy and baseness to". As the author of this case, he creates tracks out of the political opponent, the "criminal networks", and several times he speaks of a "secret service controlled action". His conclusion: "it was a targeted political assassination." If he must go, should at least stay with the party still in Power. To Norbert Hofer, he wants to pass, the infrastructure Minister and former party Deputy.

a Few meters away from his Ministry has gathered already a lot of, which consists only of a few Individual and, in the course of the hours until late in the afternoon on 15'000 people swells. Trill cards, the some of the pipes are and Red. It is a colorful meeting at which the flags of the liberal Neos and the "anti-fascist action" in labor. On the signs for the dock is "instead of government Bank", or simply "Nastrowje and Baba", Cheers and goodbye. What the amount of the power in chants is clear: "new elections, new elections."
And there are now in fact, as later in the evening the Federal President, Alexander Van der Bellen declared. Today's return is only the first step, everything else will be discussed on Sunday with the Chancellor Shortly to be kicks. Since it's supposed to go, then, the question is whether the FPÖ can remain Minister is really up to the elections could take place in September, in the office or not but still for the few months of realignment comes. At the end of Van der Bellen is a tribute to the independent journalism: "The fourth Power exercised in this case, your responsibility". (Editorial Tamedia)
