Austrian Chancellor Schallenberg says he will step down Updated: 2021-12-03 08:05:56 KST

Austrian Chancellor Alexander Schallenberg said Thursday, that he will be stepping down from his position, once his conservative People's Party agrees on its next leader, after Sebastian Kurz also announced he was quitting the political arena altogether.
In a written statement, Schallenberg said he was stepping down to make way for whoever takes over as leader of the party.
Pundits say Interior Minister Karl Nehammer, who has been an enforcer on Kurz's hard line on immigration, is most likely to become party leader and chancellor, when the People's Party leadership meets on Friday to pick a successor.
Former Foreign Minister Schallenberg became chancellor in October, following the resignation of Kurz.
