SPÖ federal party leader Pamela Rendi-Wagner is unimpressed by the party leadership survey launched by the Burgenland state organization. “No, it doesn’t annoy me or annoy me and there’s no element of surprise involved. That was the way it is,” said Rendi-Wagner on Wednesday evening on Pulse 24. For comparison, the SPÖ leader dismisses the fact that the survey reminds of times under Sebastian Kurz and his coup against ex-ÖVP boss Reinhold Mitterlehner: “You shouldn’t take Kurz’s example.”
She has been party leader of the SPÖ for four years. The latest survey, which Burgenland’s SPÖ country leader Hans Peter Doskozil sees in front of her, is “only one more”, there have already been 100 or more of them Orientation and not galloping after them,” said Rendi-Wagner on the TV political program “Milborn”. You lose credibility if you do that. “The world is the same today as it was yesterday, not much has changed.” In politics you should have your goal in mind and say what you stand for. Your personal political orientation is not based on polls “that look like this today and tomorrow”.Rendi-Wagner deviates from the question about a fight vote. Rendi-Wagner feels secure in her position. “I don’t shy away from voting.” When asked by moderator Corinna Milborn whether she wanted to face a vote in the party, the SPÖ politician did not answer explicitly. SPÖ on Doskozil course? Rendi-Wagner also sees the orientation of the SPÖ in clear paths, which were also defined by Doskozil: “We have a course, we don’t need a harder one or a softer one. We are the only ones who have had a course for four years. We are guided by a party congress decision and the paper by Peter Kaiser and Hans Peter Doskozil. ”During his “Krone” interview with Conny Bischofberger on Sunday, Doskozil had called for a clearer asylum policy than Rendi-Wagner is currently offering. Salzburg’s SPÖ boss outed himself as a Doskozil fanAfter Doskozil first had to listen to scolding from Upper Austria because of the survey launched for the upcoming top candidate in the National Council elections, Salzburg’s state party leader David Egger revealed himself as a fan of the Burgenland on Wednesday: “Hans Peter Doskozil is doing a top job and hits with his clear Social Democratic politics nailed it,” he said in a media report. With Rendi-Wagner, you have an elected federal chairwoman, there are currently no national elections and the question of the upcoming top candidate would be decided by the party committees, Egger also said. “The question the leading candidate is in the SPÖ within the appropriate Party bodies clarified when an election is due,” said Carinthian SPÖ leader and governor Peter Kaiser in writing. At the same time, he offered Doskozil to edit the asylum paper jointly prepared under Christian Kern if his fellow governor wanted an emphasis. However, Vienna’s Mayor Ludwig backed Rendi-Wagner: “My opinion is known. Nothing has changed about that.” Most recently, the mayor had said in the “Welt” that the party leader would also be the top candidate without any ifs or buts.
