Vienna, Austria: Anti-Immigration Millennial 31-year-old Sebastian Kurz has won the Austrian Election while the center Left has its worst election results since Hitler. The Peoples Party (formerly the Austrian People’s Party) leader Sebastian Kurz is projected to become Austria’s next chancellor according to exit polling on Sunday making Kurz the youngest Western and possibly world leader.
Kurz is currently leading the race with 30.2 percent of the vote.
Today we have won a huge mandate to change this country, and I promise you I will work with all my energy for change,” Mr Kurz told cheering supporters.
“We want to establish a new culture in politics. And we want to change the country for the better.”
Mr Kurz now has a mandate to pursue the hardline anti-immigrant policies he introduced as party leader.
He will be hailed by supporters for preventing an outright victory by the Freedom Party, which was leading in opinion polls just months ago.
But his critics say he has only done so by adopting much of the nationalists’ rhetoric and policies, and there will be concern in European Union capitals that a hard-Right bloc is now emerging in central Europe, with Mr Kurz lining up alongside Viktor Orban in Hungary and the Law and Justice Party government in Poland.
The Social Democrats, headed by Chancellor Christian Kern, is projected to come in second, with 27.1 percent of the votes. The far-right Freedom Party of Austria is projected to receive 25.9 percent of the votes – the party’s highest projected result to date – which would make it the third-largest party in parliament.
The center left is having its worst election year since Hitler.

Kurz’s win is expected to bring more headaches to EU globalists.
The FPOe’s return to power in the wealthy EU member would be a fresh headache for Brussels as it struggles with Brexit and the rise of nationalists in Germany, Hungary, Poland and elsewhere.
Like the Alternative for Germany, which last month became the third-largest party in the Bundestag, and France’s National Front, the FPOe has stoked concerns about a record influx of migrants into Europe.
