Se­bas­tian Kurz, 31, of the Öster­re­ichis­che Volkspartei is set to be Aus­tria’s new chan­cel­lor af­ter his party came out with the high­est per­cent­age of the vote in Oc­to­ber. While re­cent elec­tions in France and Ger­many sug­gested that left and cen­trist par­ties would hold sway in Europe, the world’s new youngest leader is a na­tion­al­ist who cam­paigned against for­eign­ers and Is­lam. Kurz says he will strengthen border se­cu­rity and re­duce the num­ber of refugees that the coun­try ac­cepts.
