Karl Bader and Andrea Eder-Gitschthaler on behalf of their parliamentary group
Vienna (OTS) – “The parliamentary group of the ÖVP Federal Councillors resolutely rejects the constant aggressive and misogynistic choice of words of the FPÖ parliamentary group leader Christoph Steiner and his parliamentary group colleagues.
“That the tone in parliament and thus also in the provincial chamber has become harsher, we have already noted with regret, but accept a certain liveliness of the debate. But with expressions such as ‘women’ and ‘hypocritical MPs’, which were used pejoratively by Federal Councillor Steiner in today’s session, he has once again brought the barrel to overflow. For us, this is unacceptable and must be rejected. A later half-hearted, tongue-in-cheek apology by Steiner is simply not enough. We expect from Christoph Steiner and his parliamentary group a change of expression and an end of disparagement and insults,” said the chairman of the ÖVP parliamentary group, Karl Bader, and his deputy Andrea Eder-Gitschthaler.
