Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz has said he plans to step down, with the country’s foreign minister to take his place.
Earlier this week, Austrian prosecutors said the chancellor and nine other individuals were being probed for bribery after investigators carried out raids on the offices of his ruling party.
Though the ÖVP backed him against the allegations, the junior coalition partner, the Greens, demanded his resignation on Friday.
Vice-Chancellor and Greens leader Werner Kogler argued that Kurz was “no longer fit for office” and called on the ÖVP to nominate an “irreproachable person” to replace him.
Kurz and his associates are accused of using public funds from the Finance Ministry to “finance partially manipulated opinion polls that served an exclusively party political interest” between 2016 and 2018.
