The enlarged federal executive, which met in Vienna for lunch, has taken a first decision.
At least one decision has already been made at the extended Federal Executive of the Greens: The former campaign manager Thimo Fiesel was named Secretary General of the party. "I just canceled my status and was unanimously confirmed as general secretary by the extended federal executive board of @Gruene_Austria," he tweeted out of the session on Sunday afternoon.
The main topic of the meeting in Vienna's Urania, however, is the question of whether coalition negotiations should be started with the OVP or not. How the opinions of the 27 members entitled to vote on this topic are presented did not yet reach the public. Federal spokesman Werner Kogler wants to announce the result after 16 clock.
Fiesel is a native German from Baden-Wurttemberg (born April 24, 1983 in Eberhardzell) and has served since 2016 as Country Manager of the Tyrolean Greens. In the EU election and in the National Council election campaign that began immediately afterwards, Fiesel, as campaign leader, organized the green campaign. At the end of October, the father of three children changed to the Green Party.
