Austrian President Plans To Call For Snap Election

Reuters reports Austrian president Alexander Van der Bellen said on Saturday that a snap election was necessary.

The statement followed the resignation of Vice Chancellor Heinz-Christian Strache, the leader of the far-right Freedom Party.

Strache stepped down after video footage was released showing him meeting with a Russian investor.

Van der Bellen said in a statement to the media that he discussed the potential snap election with Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.
