The People's Party, headed by 31-year-old foreign minister of Austria, Sebastian Kurz received the highest number of votes in Sunday's parliamentary election with 31% of the votes.
He will be the youngest head of state ever to be elected in Europe.
Eyewitness News (EWN) foreign correspondent Paula Slier says there are now talks of a coalition government after the right-wing Freedom Party took second place with 27.4% , while the centre-left Social Democrats (SPO), scored 26.7%.
He is now set to become the next chancellor of Austria after his party came first in yesterday's parliamentary elections, now he needs 50% to make the next government so the talk today is who is he going to form a coalition government.— Paula Slier, EWN foreign correspondent
