5:00 pm
77. this week d w. this is think of the do is lie from the end of the road for the austrian government . with a vote of no confidence. right freedom party government with him until just last week on the program a european elections deal historic blow to germany's conservative. social democrats
5:01 pm
the leader of the governing. party failed to address concerns over climate change as the green. nationalist party took the votes in a number of countries in these elections but fall short predicted so. i'm welcome to the program austrian chance of us the best in course has been ousted after opposition parties joined forces and the thought of no confidence motion was backed by don't make us from the far right freedom party who were in coalition with us until last week. i was forced to step down as vice chancellor after being caught in a video sting apparently offering government contracts in exchange for campaign donations no confidence vote comes just a day after a chance of course his party emerged triumphant in european elections.
5:02 pm
let's get the latest from the austrian a broadcaster. correspondent steve chait welcome to d.w. state what happens now. what happens now well the president needs to be an interim chancellor and that in turn chancellor will in turn appoint a new interim cabinet however there is that every problematic issue of tomorrow's e.u. summit because austria needs to send somebody and now the country does not have a chancellor so it's very likely that the president will leave sebastian quits in office for one or 2 days that's considered the maximum. patience threshold but austria needs to send somebody to this very important you summit so it's a bust of course will likely be around for one or 2 more days to go to brussels to be at that summit then the president needs to find an interim chance just to be clear this no confidence motion this removes the chancellor and his government.
5:03 pm
entire government in one fell swoop and it's the 1st time that has ever happened in post-war austria there were i believe 185 no competent oceans brought since 1905 not succeeded until today there was an initial motion that would have just removed the boston who had just but then the social democrats came forward with the nuclear option and that was to remove the courts and his entire cabinet why because they don't want to give him any kind of an advantage leading up to this now election in september they don't want him to be able to campaign as a sitting chancellor they don't want his government in place when a new consensus government of technocrats and they want to campaign on sort of a level playing field ok so this was a motion brought by the social democrats it was backed by chance of course is
5:04 pm
a form a coalition pablo's the freedom potty why did they got help on this particular bandwagon. yet the optics are quite bizarre because whenever you see the social democrats from the last. party from the far right teaming up. people don't really understand it but the simple answer is self-interest both parties got what they wanted on the social democrats are allowed to heap a bunch of mud on this boston chords and move him in his cabinet the freedom party quite clearly wanted revenge because the bus accords didn't meet the oust it is his coalition partner and today in parliament. there were a lot of speeches. that were not complimentary to sebastian included in the freedom parties. it was very clear. that he was on a revenge path. but all the terrible things about it says self interest in being
5:05 pm
havior that this is not the way to treat and when they're down why should the. party be punished when just 2 people within the party were caught doing something wrong you know one of them out and to be at a shot at who is the party leader vice chancellor and what he was meeting to wanting to do in that video was completely beyond pale had to be punished but it was the interior minister and for him to get ousted i was told more than rets ok just briefly so the freedom party wanted revenge why did the social democrats bring this no confidence motion in the 1st place. well they decided this last night and cynically for political advantage because now it's all about the snap election and posturing and the sort of democrats have been losing traction losing ground they need an issue so they're keeping all of the problems.
5:06 pm
that's about the course it could be attached to that the freedom party will the social democrats want to portray this whole situation as something that was instigated because of sebastian who are sort of to remove him from from the chancellor ship is their best way to make it stick to its campaign thank you so much for clarifying that for us though steve good to talk to steve chait in vienna thank you mainstream centrist boxes of stuff a big losses in the european parliamentary elections amongst the german this ruling coalition of conservatives and social democrats the head of the conservatives has spoken publicly about the results of noticing that her party failed to address the young voters worries especially over climate change. as the results came in at c.d.u. headquarters the scale of the night's losses became clear. a blow for the chancellor
5:07 pm
but not a reason to step down. is our elected chance now that we have to think things through we have no plans for a change in leadership because that's not decided by one party alone and chided that. it was all vs things work going the see the use way even before polls closed once the votes were counted it was up to the party's leader to admit its shortcomings that's a good this is the c's to me this is the worst result for the c.d.u. in its entire history either at the european or the federal level. and i want to make it completely clear that this is not in line with our claim to be a big tent party folks motoko fished with the c.d.u. once dominated german politics now voters are asking what the future holds dinka do you want your own car i think they need to put some thought into who's running things and perhaps also communicate a more skillful astonished i don't think there's
5:08 pm
a bright side for them like there was after the last few elections. the greens on the other hand had every reason to celebrate a stunning performance built on their core topics of climate change and digitalisation never has the party been so successful in a nationwide election that doubled its share of the vote at the expense of the governing coalition. of the national level i would hope the government controlled the right conclusions from these elections and that doesn't mean party leaders should worry about what their parties needs are right now but that the government as the name suggests did actually start governing it preferably in terms of the key issues of climate protection and a pro european orientation. for the other party in germany's ruling coalition shock and disbelief the social democrats also face their worst ever result in a nationwide election. that this has got more from i did abuse that william no i blew. off from a bureau chief in brussels. welcome both let's start with you william so we have
5:09 pm
cd you coming in 1st here in germany despite losing votes as the s.p.d. a dismal 3rd also shedding significant numbers of voters those a european parliament elections are they likely to affect the way the german government is constituted i mean it's hard to see how it won't the result of the european elections that we just saw has is just the next step in a long slow descent of these major parties here in germany and we've been talking for a long time how the c.d.u. this be known as this grand coalition the 2 traditionally largest parties in germany are not so grand anymore of losing support we saw this in the bonus tags evolve in the general election here in germany 2 years ago we're seeing it again reflected in the european election and there's a lot of pressure mounting up against them just a few days before the election we had the the so-called rate so effect this you tube or who came out and then along with many many you tube affiliates coming out
5:10 pm
to really hit hard against the c.d.u. and the s.p.d. this was them saying don't vote for them now of course you can't make a direct correlation that how much of an effect they really had but one thing is for certain. they do speak for a large portion of young voters especially young voters in germany who may have been influenced by this in the voter turnout. hoffman this client of the mainstream sense the left and center right parties this is not just a german phenomenon this is. well it the german decline of the big parties does account for a lot of the losses that the conservatives and the social democratic parties in europe sustained on sunday night i would say probably one of the biggest chunks also the conservatives in the u.k. the tory party there were some countries were a social democrats and conservatives were successful just for example social democrats in spain or in malta yes it's true of course overall both parties both
5:11 pm
factions lost a significant amount of seats in the european parliament that's why the whole process now to find for example a majority for the new you commission president will be more complicated and that's why here in brussels where i am those different political groups and the leaders of those groups are gearing up to try to find some kind of consensus against the and european parties we're probably going to have a 1st meeting of those political leaders tonight but at the very latest tomorrow morning before the informal you summit that's taking place here in brussels where the leaders the heads of state and government will try to hash things out on their side and not the big winners of the night clearly the greens what will they offering that drew in so many versions. i think you can describe that in 2 words climate change they really took that topic seriously have taken that topic seriously for decades now and it seems like especially young voters did not feel
5:12 pm
like the other parties especially the big center parties were reflecting the topic in an adequate way and even those people we talked to last night here in brussels the police the leaders of those groups for example from the german c.d.u. and generally speaking the european peoples party the c.d.u. is part of that political group and also the social democrats said as much they said we didn't take that topic seriously enough we need to change that and that's why many here think that climate change and fighting climate change will have a much more prominent role in the next european parliament because also the big groups will try to integrate it into their policy so that they're all going to climb on this particular a bandwagon. we. talk about took us through the age limit to this here in germany yeah there's no ignoring this i mean the reach so effect that we are just for mentioning fridays for future the green party these all have serious significant overlaps i mean if you just look at at the end the 2017
5:13 pm
national action here in germany the c.d.u. was still able to get 24 percent of 18 to 24 year olds and now we see here on this graph the base the voting base for the greens in the last yesterday's election here in germany 2 thirds of their voting base were under 35 about so we can see that young people are really responding this climate crisis and they see the greens as the most credible party to bring about potential solutions for climate change ok thank you so much for that. while i have you it is it seems to be unrelenting for the european union of the moment a problem after problem after problem there is australia which has no chance of what sort of reaction has not brought. to be fair that's not a problem for the european union but that's a problem for austria 1st of all we need to wait and see who's going to show up at that summit i mentioned earlier on tuesday it appears our correspondent in vienna thinks that it's still going to be the best encodes sort of
5:14 pm
a commissioner interims chancellor in that case who will be here but he'll be a lame duck so when. heads of government and state will hash out things here in brussels on tuesday night you know there are a couple of posts they need to decide on for example president of the e.u. commission or the future president of the e.u. council or the european central bank all crucial positions i'm not sure the austrians will have the say they would have expected before this crisis in austria . in brussels thank you william blue cross thank you. the far right and nationalist parties have been predicted to surge to success in your previous actions but things didn't work out quite that way on the night. france's marie le pen was one of the far right leaders celebrating last night have victory over the party president emmanuel mccall was razor thin but hugely symbolic she says it means things will have to change in france in future. she was
5:15 pm
a soft cheerleader she believes she can get out of this issue asian where she finds himself tonight the failure to defeat the team is experienced with a reach and which she will play recklessly with the saying that it will not work that is not what the french people expect. in britain and to european leader nigel farrar she also said the success of his bags party showed not just that britons want to leave the e.u. but that they also want politics to change fundamentally. but the most significant victory of the night went to metairie salvini is far right to lead party in italy. there when went beyond all expectations salvini said this was a sign that europe was about to undergo a transformation. not only is the league the 1st party in italy but marine le pen is the 1st party in france and the u.k.
5:16 pm
nodule for august 1st so italy france england it's the sort of a europe that is changing. but despite his success it's unlikely that salvini will be able to fulfill his dream of working with other nationalists to turn the e.u. on its head from within the populace in other countries did not do as well meaning the far right will still be in a minority in the european parliament. and they're also divided among themselves hungary's anti immigrant leader viktor orban netted more than 50 percent of the vote but disagrees with other populists on a range of. even so analysts say it would be no longer possible. the euro to go back to business as usual given the gains made by such parties. and the changing dynamics of politics in the media have been brought into sharp focus as the leaders around the world contest the legitimacy of journalists on their work this is one of the subjects being debated at the annual global media for which is being hosted by
5:17 pm
