Europe’s newest face: Kurz’s election win indicates rightward shift for Austria

French President Emmanuel Macron no longer holds the bragging rights to the title "Europe's fresh face". Sebastian Kurz, the 31-year-old leader of Austria's Christian Democrats and the winner of Sunday's snap election now holds that distinction. So what can we expect from this new leader whose ideas were supported by one quarter of the vote? The issues of immigration dominated his campaign and he openly embraced the prospect of forming a coalition with the far-right.

Produced by Daniel BARNEY, Alessandro XENOS, Christopher DAVIS.
