The Electoral system of Austria

The 183 members of the National Council are elected by open list proportional representation at the level of one federal constituency consisting of all of Austria, 9 state constituencies, and 39 regional constituencies. The number of seats elected by each constituency is determined in accordance with the results of the most recent census. Seats are allocated in a three-stage process, from regional constituencies to state constituencies to the federal constituency. For parties to receive seats in the National Council, they must either win a seat in at least one constituency or clear a 4 per cent national electoral threshold. Seats are distributed according to the Hare method in the first two stages, at the level of regional and state constituencies, with the remaining constituencies allocated using the D'Hondt method at the federal level to ensure proportionality with the election result.

In addition to voting for a national party list, voters have the option of casting three preferential votes capable of changing the order of precedence for candidates on a party list: one each at the federal, state, and regional level. The threshold to increase the position of a candidate on a federal party list is 7 per cent, compared to 10 per cent at the state level and 14 per cent at the regional level. Preferential votes for candidates on regional party lists may be indicated by marking the given spot on the ballot, whereas the name or ranking number must be provided for preferential votes for party-list candidates on the state and federal level.

Austria National Council election Dates 2018

Austria National Council election Date: 30 September 2018

Austria has a multi-party system. From 1945 to 1986 Austria had two main parties, with a third party also winning seats in the National Council. Since 1986 there have been generally four parties, for a few years even five. At least 4% of the popular vote, or a parliamentary seat in one of the regional constituencies, is needed for representation in the National Council.

In some cases, a referendum can be called on by the Austrian Parliament.

In 2007, the voting age was lowered from 18 to 16 in all federal elections, following some states which had lowered it for state and local elections before that.


Austria National Council election Voting Live 2018 

1.The Austrian People's Party(ÖVP) emerged as the largest party in the National Council, winning 62 of the 183 seats. The Social Democratic Party (SPÖ) finished second with 52 seats, slightly ahead of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), which received 51 seats. NEOS finished fourth with 10 seats, and PILZ (which split from the Green Party at the start of the campaign) entered parliament for the first time and came in fifth place with 8 seats. The Green Party failed to cross the 4% threshold and was ejected from parliament, losing all of its 24 seats.

2.The FPÖ's tally of 51 seats is the second-closest that a third party has come to overtaking either the ÖVP or SPÖ since World War II, behind only its tie with the ÖVP in seat count (and narrow edge in votes) in the 1999 election. The 2017 result is only the second time since 1966 that the ÖVP has been the largest party in the National Council.

Austrian presidential election postponed due to Glue on Postal Ballots, Austrian presidential election New dates timeline, Wolfgang Sobotka,Austria election new schedule released

The re-run of Austria’s presidential election on October 2 needs to be postponed because of problems with glue on postal votes not sticking, the interior minister said Monday.

  1. “We are going to request that parliament approves a postponement of the election,” Wolfgang Sobotka told reporters.
  2. Possible new dates are November 27 or December 4, he said. 
  3. The rerun, which was ordered after complaints of anomalies in the counting of postal votes from the rightwing Freedom party (FPÖ), had been due to take place on 2 October. It will now be held on 4 December.–TheGuadian

The postponement is a further embarrassment for Austria, a wealthy and advanced Western democracy and EU member, and for the government of Chancellor Christian Kern.

Austria has been without a president since July 8 when Heinz Fischer stepped down. He was replaced on an interim basis by the speaker of parliament and two deputy speakers. The last election result from May was annulled after Austria’s highest court in July upheld claims of procedural irregularities made by the narrowly-defeated far-right.

Austrian police are investigating how the envelopes, which have apparently been made by the same company for decades, came unstuck. One theory is that they became too warm during transportation, drying the glue out.

AUSTRIA will re-run its presidential election on October 2 – the same day Hungary holds a referendum on the European Union’s mandatory migrant quotas.

 

  1. Nine Iraqi asylum seekers have been arrested on suspicion of gang rape
  2. Comes after a German woman was attacked in Vienna on New Year's Day
  3. She was taken from train station to apartment where she was assaulted
  4. Woman believes she was drugged as she can't remember going to the apartment 
  5. Police in Vienna confirmed that the men aged between 21 and 47 were detained and all were either granted asylum in Austria or applying for it.
  6. Officers are now using DNA evidence and video surveillance to build their case. 
  7. All nine of the men deny the accusations. 


Nine Iraqi refugees have been arrested in Austria on suspicion of gang-raping a 28-year-old German woman in a case that could ignite debate of immigration and crime ahead of this Autumn’s presidential election re-run.

The arrest of the nine Iraqis, all either asylum seekers or recently granted asylum, comes as Austria’s anti-immigrant Freedom Party seeks to over-turn the result of June’s presidential election after mounting a successful legal challenge to pave the way for a re-run on October 2.

The arrests were made over the weekend, police confirmed, after DNA evidence and CCTV camera footage was used to build a case against the nine asylum seekers.

Ahead of the Oct. 2 election, the Freedom Party's (FPO) Norbert Hofer is just ahead of his independent rival, Alexander Van der Bellen, who narrowly beat Hofer in a previous run-off vote in May that was annulled.

Oesterreich tabloid Survey
Hofer  53%
Van der Bellen 47%

A poll of 600 people published by the Oesterreich tabloid showed the average support for Hofer at 53 percent, one point higher than a poll in late July, versus 47 percent for former Greens head Alexander Van der Bellen.

Another poll, of 778 people with a margin of error of 3.6 percent, published by newspaper Kurier, found 38 percent thought Hofer would win while 34 percent expected Van der Bellen to.

In polls for parliamentary elections set for 2018, the FPO regularly attracts more than 33 percent, ahead of both ruling centrist parties.
