Who is Austria’s 31-year-old chancellor-in-waiting?
Sebastian Kurz, Austria’s telegenic 31-year-old foreign minister, is set to become the nation’s next chancellor and the youngest leader in the European Union.Returns from Sunday’s parliamentary election show that Kurz’s right-leaning People’s Party had pulled a commanding lead over the far-right Freedom Party and the center-left Social Democrats.Kurz, a Millennial from Vienna known for his slicked-back, dark hair and promises to curb immigration to Austria by mostly Muslim migrants, became foreign minister in 2013 at the age of 27.Now, he’s on the path to come to power younger than French President Emmanuel Macron, 39. He’d also be junior to North Korea leader Kim Jong Un, who is believed to be 33. And with his calls for tougher immigration rules, Kurz also effectively pushed his once center-right People’s Party further to the political right.
