Austria's conservative People's Party, led by 31-year-old Sebastian Kurz, won the country's early parliamentary election on Sunday, and the far-right Freedom Party secured a mandate to enter government coalition talks after a strong showing at the ballot box.

Both parties are anti-immigration in their rhetoric.

According to Britain’s The Times newspaper, a new right-wing and anti-immigration alliance of Austria, Poland and Hungary is likely to emerge in Europe, aided by other Central European countries concerned over Muslim refugees. (gs)
