    The executive committee of the conservative ÖVP had unanimously designated 49-year-old Nehammer as the new head of the conservatives and the new chancellor. The trigger for the personnel rogue was ex-Chancellor Sebastian Kurz’s withdrawal from politics. He resigned as head of government in October on suspicion of corruption.

    On Thursday, Kurz surprisingly announced his retirement as party leader and into private life. Schallenberg is supposed to return to the Foreign Ministry.

    Nehammer was a professional soldier with the rank of lieutenant and a long-time party official. Among other things, he stands for a tough stance against illegal migration and radical Islamist currents. (dpa)
