The Greens want to enter into concrete coalition negotiations with the OVP. The confirmed party leader Werner Kogler on Sunday.
OVP has the last word
Because the final decision on whether it comes to such, is now in the OVP. Here, the committees will meet on Monday to vote on it. A "no" from the People's Party would come as surprisingly, as it would have been one of the Greens.
During his statement, Kogler did not comment on the concrete content of the soundings. He roughly outlined which topics were particularly important to the Greens and would also be involved in coalition negotiations. At any rate, it is clear that it needs compromises. These should not be denounced, "said Kogler.
Negotiate "as long as necessary"
Should the OVP also give its readiness for concrete government negotiations, the Greens will nominate a negotiating team until Tuesday. One would negotiate "not on failure", nevertheless it could come to such large differences of opinion that a government co-operation "does not go out".
If it comes to negotiations, these would take "not three years". But you will not rush anything. The negotiations would have to be conducted "as long as necessary" said the Green Party chief, who wishes above all that the "Republic of Austria is again pro-European" position.
