Actual politics is quite boring at the moment, so the most intriguing political gamble right now is the next ÖSV President.

The ÖSV is the Austrian Ski Federation.

Peter Schröcksnadel, ÖSV-President since over 30 years (from the powerful Tyrol state branch), is finally retiring in June.

Schröcksnadel is a multi-millionaire businessman and a controversial, autocratic figure - similar to Imperator Palpatine.



His "chosen" successor is Michael Walchhofer (from the 2nd-most powerful state branch Salzburg) and a former Austrian skiing legend.

Apparently though, Schröcksi doesn't want to go quiety and still prefers to meddle out of his retirement behind the scences.

Walchhofer seems to have fallen out of favour with Schröcksi because "of his closeness to the ÖVP" (lol) - considering Schröcksi is an ÖVPler as well. He says "he wants a party-politics-free ÖSV."

Therefore, another Austrian skiing legend, Renate Götschl (from the Styrian state branch, also ÖVP) has entered the race.

Schröcksi has the backing of Tyrol, Vorarlberg, Vienna and Styria - meaning he needs only one additional state to push Götschl to victory as the first female ÖSV-President.

The talk is that Schröcksi can still have some influence over Götschl from his retirement couch, whereas Walchhofer would go a completely new independent way forward.


Walchhofer, Schröcksnadel, Götschl

So, why not a Doppelspitze ?

Tongue

Or a compromise candidate ?

This should be fun.

Meanwhile, the Swiss and other top ski nations are breaking out the popcorn at this spectacle.



The 9 states will meet and vote in June.

Major earthquake in the Tyrol state government today:

https://www.nachrichten.at/politik/innenpolitik/in-tirol-kuendigen-an-einem-tag-zwei-landesraete-den-job;art385,3394106

2 state cabinet members from the ÖVP (for health and for economic matters) announced their resignations today.

This comes on the day the „Standard“ newspaper unveiled a possible mega-scandal in the state about hundreds of thousands of possibly falsified PCR tests during the last months, contracted by the ÖVP-led government to a Vienna mobile lab.

As if Ischgl wasn’t enough for the image of Tyrol ...

A new Upper Austria poll by GMK for the weekly „Rundschau“ has been briefly posted and then deleted again (maybe it will be out tomorrow when the paper is sent out).

It says ÖVP and Greens in the state can be happy ...

Upper Austria votes on September 26, together with Germany.

I will post the results later.

Direct vote for Governor:



72% approve of the government work (in Upper Austria, there’s an all-party government - but ÖVP-FPÖ have a working agreement in parliament).

73% say that the federal ÖVP-Green government performance will impact the decision-making of voters for the state election

Another new Upper Austria poll by Unique Research for „Heute“:

39% ÖVP (+2.6 vs. 2015 election)
21% FPÖ (-9.4)
21% SPÖ (+2.6)
12% Greens (+1.7)
  6% NEOS (+2.5)
  1% Others

https://epaper.heute.at/#/documents/210507_HEU/6

NEOS would enter the Upper Austria state parliament for the first time and it seems the FPÖ is losing to all other parties after their strong migrant wave election result in late 2015.

21% is still very good for them, it seems they have a solid base there and they might remain the strongest state party of all 9 states.
