Austria: Walter Baier, former national chairman of the Communist Party of Austria interviewed by Real News

Democracy and Class Struggle says that the victory in the referendum of Mr Van Der Bellen in the Presidential Elections while at one level is a defeat for the right - also contains a contradiction Mr Van Der Bellen is a neo -liberal and believes in European Union and austerity policies.

In the coming Parliamentary elections it is unlikely that the United Front against the Freedom Party which allowed this Presidential victory against the right in Austria can be be maintained.
