Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz, who is widely expected to take the reins of the conservative party in the country's coalition government, called on Friday for a snap parliamentary election to be held.
Axar.az reports citing Reuters.
"I personally believe early elections would be the right path," Kurz told a news conference.
While Kurz is widely favored within his People's Party (OVP) to become its next leader after Reinhold Mitterlehner quit this week, he left open the issue of whether he intended to take on the role at a party meeting on Sunday.
