The Chancellor’s visit to Kleinwalsertal shows the difficulties for future election campaigns. The parties react to this in the Vienna election campaign and in Styria.
The Chancellor visits the Kleinwalsertal, a crowd receives him, and the opposition is outraged. Because the Corona distance rules set by the government were not complied with when Sebastian Kurz visited. The Neos are therefore reviewing advertisements, the SPÖ speaks of “scandalous images” and the FPÖ locates a “life threatening person” in short. The Chancellery said that in the run-up to and during the visit, efforts were made directly to regulate the distance. However, residents and media representatives sometimes failed to comply with these. But how close can you get as a politician to the population? And what rules apply to the municipal election campaigns that are coming up this year in Styria, Vorarlberg or Vienna?
