Austria Considering Snap Election After Far-Right Video Scandal

According to a report by Reuters, on Sunday, Austria's chancellor and president will discuss a date for an early parliamentary election and the makeup of a caretaker government, after a video sting brought down the leader of the far-right junior partners in the ruling coalition.

Chancellor Sebastian Kurz called for a snap election after his deputy, far-right Freedom Party leader Heinz-Christian Strache, quit over a video showing him discussing fixing state contracts in exchange for favors.
