Austrian ‘whizz-kid’ set to be youngest world leader at 31

Vienna : Austria’s President on Friday tasked election-winner Sebastian Kurz with forming a government, putting the 31-year-old conservative on course to become the world’s youngest leader.Kurz, nicknamed “wunderwuzzi” (“whizz-kid”), is now expected to enter coalition talks with the far-right Freedom Party (FPOe), potentially giving the European Union a fresh headache.
Kurz’s People’s Party (OeVP) came first in Sunday’s election with 31.5 per cent, followed by the centre-left Social Democrats. The populist Freedom Party, highly critical of the EU, came a close third.
“I want a new political culture, a new political style,” Kurz said. “I want a government that has the courage to bring about real change in Austria.”
