Austria Headed For Snap Election After Far-Right Video Scandal

According to a report by Reuters, on Sunday, Austria's president recommended a new election be held in early September, claiming that he wanted to restore trust in the government after a video scandal led to the resignation of the vice chancellor.

On Saturday, Chancellor Sebastian Kurz pulled the plug on the coalition and called for a snap election after his deputy, Heinz-Christian Strache, quit over a video appearing to show him discussing fixing state contracts in exchange for favors.
