Austriaís Menís Party is set to take part in the upcoming General Election.

Mens Party to stand in elections

Austria’s Men’s Party is set to take part in the upcoming General Election.

Vorarlberg chairman Hannes Hausbichler announced his party’s candidacy following a statement made by Parliamentary President Barbara Prammer (SPOe) that 50 per cent of candidates should be women.

Hausbichler described the idea of a „senseless quota" as promoting sexism.

He added that his party stands for justice and individual responsibility, and said he wanted to see more fairness in family politics. Hausbichler believes there’s a lot of injustice in this area, which is propagated by a sexist-feminist atmosphere.

He said his manifesto included more than just family issues, and it would be available for all to see before the elections.

The party, which was initially founded by a group of men, does not exclude women. In fact up to 40 per cent of its Vorarlberg members are female.  „We’re not just about men’s rights – we stand for human rights," said Hausbichler.

He added that many of his female members felt let down by feminist politicians who were not representative of them.

It is not yet known whether Hausbichler, who is also national vice-chairman, or another member of the party will stand for candidacy.

Two teenage girls go missing as they fly from Austria to fight in Syria
Two teenager girls who say they have left Austria to fight in Syria have trigged an international search operation from the Austrian police. The two - a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old - left identical letters behind telling their families goodbye and that "we will meet in in Paradise". The letters told of their plans to go to Syria to "fight for Islam". The parents of the girls reported that their children had gone missing last week and since then the police tracked them to Turkish city of Adana, where they had flown to from Austria - after that the police lost track of the girls. Adana is 75 miles northwest of Aleppo, a city that became a major battleground during the civil war taking place in Syria. Police spokesman Thomas Keiblinger say that the police are taking the farewell letters "very seriously" and are now conducting an international search for two teenage girls who left farewell letters announcing plans to "fight for Islam" in Syria. Both girls come from families who immigrated from Bosnia but have not been fully identified by Austrian police.
