In another stunning defeat for Europe’s establishment, as previewed earlier this morning Austria’s 31-year-old Sebastian Kurz is assured victory in the Austrian National Council elections, with his center-right People’s Party set to take roughly 30.2% of the vote according to exit polls by Austrian broadcaster ORF, while just as shocking is that the anti-immigrant, nationalist Freedom Party appears set to top the Social Democrats in 2nd place with 26.8% of the vote: the two parties are expected to form a coalition government, while Chancellor Christian Kern’s Social Democrats are looking at another devastating – for Europe’s legacy parties – loss, sliding to 3rd spot with just 26.3% of the vote.

The full breakdown from the initial exit polls vs the last election results in 2013:

People’s Party (Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz) 30.5% vs 24%
Freedom Party (Heinz-Christian Strache) 26.8% vs 20.5%
Social Democrats (Chancellor Christian Kern) 26.2% vs 26.8% in 2013
Neos (Matthias Strolz) 5.3% vs 5%
Greens (Ulrike Lunacek) 4.7% vs 12.4%
Liste Pilz (Peter Pilz) 4.3% (didn’t run in 2013)

The preliminary geographic breakdown of Sunday’s election shows that most constituencies voted for the People’s Party:
