Dataset: Austria: Parliamentary Election 1990

Abstract

<p><b>Date of election</b>: 7 October 1990</p>

<p><b>Main issues</b>: During the campaign, debate focused largely on domestic issues and mutual accusations between the parties. SPÖ - in power since 1970 - had been hurt by a series of corruption scandals; they centred their campaign on the personality of the Chancellor (Franz Vranitzky).  Jörg Haider, the populist head of the FPÖ, campaigned strongly against immigration, especially from Eastern Europe; he characterized the two coalition partners (SPÖ and ÖVP) as &ldquo;old parties devoid of new ideas&rdquo;.</p>
<p><b>Outcome of election</b>: Voting results left the SPÖ as the largest single party as the runner-up ÖVP lost 17 seats - its worst score in decades; the FPÖ, however, nearly doubled its representation to arrive at 33. As four years earlier, the outcome once again reflected the electorate&rsquo;s shift to the right side of the political spectrum. On 17 December, Mr. Vranitzky was sworn in as Federal Chancellor at the head, once again, of a &ldquo;grand coalition&rdquo; of the SPÖ and the ÖVP</p>
