    The problem with your view is: he is the leader of a party being in power since 1987 (either as the leading party or as the partner). If this party had the will to change anything, they could have.

    De facto Austria is paralyzed by this party since decades.

    Seems a little farther right than before, a populist turn.

    This young leader's platform is strikingly similar to that of Trump and he seems to be a wannabe Trump. What's dangerous for the new Austrian government is forming a coalition with the Freedom Party, an ally of Marine Le Pen's National Front in France, which emerged as the second largest right-wing party.
