31-year-old Sebastian Kurz set to become Austria’s leader

31-year-old Sebastian Kurz set to become the next leader of Austria.

Sebastian Kurz appeared all but certain to become the world’s youngest leader at just 31 after his conservative People’s Party (ÖVP) was the clear winner in initial exit polls.

But the nationalist Freedom Party (FPÖ) led by Heinz-Christian Strache looked set to emerge as kingmaker in coalition talks after Mr Kurz failed to win an outright majority.

With 85 per cent of votes counted, the Freedom Party was locked in a neck-and-neck battle for second place with the Social Democrat party (SPÖ) of outgoing chancellor Christian Kern.
