Valid for election 2023 – Neos still agree to new election regulations
Nothing now stands in the way of the reform of the state election regulations. So far, the Neos around party leader Andrea Klambauer have refused to put their signature under the reform.
That is changing now. “We didn’t want to prevent the package, but more would have been possible,” says Klambauer. There are a few points that are good, such as the ten-year right to vote for residents of Salzburg abroad. The Neos boss also welcomes digitization. On the other hand, she criticizes the hurdles for entering the state parliament. “I would have wished that Salzburg didn’t have the highest hurdles for all points.” She means about the 5 percent hurdle for entering the state parliament. With the approval, the reform will already be in force by the 2023 election.
