Christof Bitschi, state party chairman FPÖ
The blue state party leader said in the Vorarlberger Nachrichten about the tax assessment received on the business association affair of the Vorarlberg ÖVP: “It is now in black and white on the table that an ÖVP sub-organization has wrongly not paid taxes of over 770,000 euros for years In addition, there is a risk of further tax payments for those money payments that flowed directly from the ÖVP-Wirtschaftsbund – without detours – to the state ÖVP as the parent party and do what he should have done a long time ago and resign.”
Heidi Schuster-Burda, candidate for mayoral election Höchst
In Höchst there will be a big showdown for the mayor’s office on Sunday. The ÖVP candidate and interim mayor Heidi Schuster-Burda decided the first round of voting just ahead of the candidate from Höchste Zeit/Die Grünen, Stefan Übelhör. Shortly before the runoff election, the waves rose again in the Lake Constance community. The week before the run-off election was characterized by internal ÖVP letters that were made public and allegations of candidate duels not taking place.
Kathrin Stainer-Hämmerle, political scientist
Due to the latest developments in the Wirtschaftsbund affair in the Vorarlberger Nachrichten, the political scientist locates a “damaged credibility” of the state ÖVP The governing party doesn’t either if the belief in the problem-solving capacity decreases. Populist movements in particular win with this.”
