KES congratulates Van der Bellen on his victory

By a clear majority Alexander Van der Bellen was elected as the new President of Austria. Van der Bellen is the voice of reason and he embodies an open and diverse Austria that fully backs the European process of unification and peace. The outcome of the election gives us hope for the future of Europe. Next year parliamentary and presidential elections will be held in Germany and France.

KES welcomes the decision of the Austrians and wishes the designated Federal President Van der Bellen a good hand in the performance of his duties.
