Its strategy to curb the spread of the epidemic rests on three pillars: the implementation of particularly stringent containment measures, the isolation of groups and territories at risk, and perfect control over its crisis communication.
100 days after the advent of a new "green conservatism", Austria is demonstrating the efficacy of a political solution it continues to invent as it goes along. The management of the crisis by the Conservative Chancellor and his Green Minister of Health is considered an undeniable success, as well as a gamble. According to a poll published in the Standard on April 2, 43% of voters now have the intention to vote for the Austrian Conservative Party (ÖVP) at the federal level - which would win it six points compared to the last elections. As for its coalition partner, 19% of voters indicate their intention to vote for the Green Party, a figure that is equivalent to an increase of three points since the last elections. Meanwhile, the FPÖ, the country’s right-wing populist party - which was allied with the Conservatives until 2019 - attains 11% of voting intentions, its worst score in many years.
