Austria: Far-right Vice-Chancellor Strache forced to resign | DW News
Austria's vice-chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache, of the far-right Freedom Party has announced his resignation from the country's coalition government. Strache was forced to step down after German media published a secretly recorded 2017 video from the island of Ibiza. It appears to show Strache offering government contracts in return for campaign donations. Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, of the People's Party had already ruled out further co-operation with Strache in the country's governing coalition although Strache had denied any wrongdoing.
CORRECTION: The Spiegel journalist Wolf Wiedmann Schmidt was kind enough to join DW in the studio. Unfortunately a typo slipped into his name during the segment. His name is, of course, Wolf and not Wold.
