Austria’s far-right Freedom Party (FPÖ) has pulled out of the ruling coalition days after two top party figures were caught up in a secret video.
President Alexander Van der Bellen fired FPÖ Interior Minister Herbert Kickl, prompting the party’s other ministers to resign in solidarity.
In the video, far-right leader Heinz-Christian Strache appears to offer government contracts to a woman in exchange for electoral support.
He has stood down as vice-chancellor.
The interior minister was not in the footage, but on Tuesday, President Van der Bellen fired him at the request of Chancellor Sebastian Kurz.
