Human Rights Talk: Does Austria need an election reform?

Logo Human Rights Talks

The findings of the Constitutional Court on the repetition of the Federal Presidential Election have brought to light problems in the Austrian electoral processes that have long been in need of a solution. As part of upcoming electoral reforms, some of which are enshrined in the new government agreement, future electoral rights reforms should also meet the recommendations of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and the Council of Europe's Group of States against Corruption (GRECO), as well as including civil society.
