Public Meeting at the Economics University, Vienna


 

Caretaker Government "Hausmeisterregierung"

 June 2019 a caretaker government was sworn in composed of experts and senior civil servants following the loss of a parliamentary vote of no confidence in the government of Chancellor Kurz (ÖVP). It will serve until the Autumn elections and beyond until a new government can be formed. According to the constitution it has the same power as any government but it is recognised that its reduced democratic legitimacy means it has to tread carefully. Caretaker conventions either written or not giving guidance as in other countries eg Spain, Portugal, Canada, Australia and the UK do not exist. So the "Hausmeister Regierung" has thrown up questions in this regard examined in an interview with Dr Melanie Sully in the quality Austrian daily "Der Standard" and in an interview she gave with Swiss radio:
