Yesterday was a historic day for the Austrian Green Party, as they landed third in voting for city parliament. Known locally as “Die Grüne” or “The Greens”, the party landed 14.6% of the votes, beating out far-right parties, such as the “Freedom Party of Austria”, whose support nosedived from 31% in 2015, to 7.5%.

Via The Green Party of Austria: “Thank you to all voters for your strong support. The result is a clear call for greener politics in the most liveable city in the world. More green politics for the next 5 years – more green politics for Vienna”.
