Phone book lists wrong government

Phone book lists wrong government

In an embarrasment for the new Goverment of Carinthia, the brand new phone book just published by Herold lists former Governors where the newly elected ones should be.

Instead of new Governor of Carinthia SPO Peter Kaiser and his deputy SPO Beate Prettner being named, the white pages of the phone book list the Governor of the county as Gerhard Dorfler who lost his position as Governor in 2013.

Another mistake was the inclusion of Josef Martinz, who retired from his position with the OVP provincial government in 2012.

Nobody has taken the blame for the mistake yet. Publishers Herold say that the white pages section of the phone book where the mistake happened are the responsibility of Telekom. However Telekom argue that it's not their fault as the new government should have alerted them to the change.

Siegfried Wiggisser, the head of the department for telecommunications for the Carinthian Government disagrees, saying that they are not to blame as they did everything in a timely manner and it could just be a technical error at Herold.
