New Austria's chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, has achieved a great feat by forming a coalition between two political parties in his country as he was sworn in by President Alexander Van der Bellen.
The political collaboration happened between his People’s Party and the Greens in the bid to battle climate change, Bloomberg reports.
With the coalition, there will be a smooth combination between Kurz’s passion for migration and deficits, and Werner Kogler's, the Green’s party leader, interest in climate change.
Gernor Bluemel, Kurz’s finance minister and Kogler’s “super minister”, Leonore Gewessler, will work on how to reposition the country’s economy, reduce tax burdens and fix climate by 2040.
Inga Fechner, a well-known economist, has said that fixing taxes and achieving climate neutrality at the said time is very expensive.
“Reducing the tax burden or reaching climate neutrality by 2040 are costly plans. The budgeting of the government’s plans is not yet entirely clear,” he said.
It should be noted that the new coalition has been reported as a big change from Kurz’s former merger with Freedom Party. With the new government, the executives will be made of seven men and eight women.
It has been said that the country’s new coalition could be seen as a promising example for politicians wanting to stabilize their government by conquering the threat of “right-wing” populism.
