Today, the leader of the Alliance for the Future of Austria (BZÖ), Jörg Haider, died in a car crash. Ironically, he died in the tragic car accident a mere 13 days after his party received 10.7% of the Austrian vote. They had gained 14 seats, one more than the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ). Both parties together received over 28% of the vote.
You must realize that both the BZÖ and the FPÖ are what are termed national-liberal, pan-German parties. To be more specific, they are what many call 'national-conservative' or 'populist'. Others have called them 'far right.'
In any case I suppose it is quite a coincidence that the leader of the recent BZÖ died in such a way after receiving such impressive results. It makes one wonder what the future of the party will be after his loss.
