EU in CRISIS: Austria could join anti-immigration Visegrad group in Brussels slap down

AUSTRIA could be about to join the anti-immigration Visegrad group after a controversial election that has caused havoc for the European Union.

Sebastian Kurz is set to become the continent’s youngest leader after his Austrian People’s Party topped the polls after Sunday's vote.

But, despite warnings from the EU, he may need to form a coalition with the far-right Freedom Party (FPO) to secure a government.

Now reports in the Polish press suggest the FPO could insist Austria joins the Visegrad group, a four-nation alliance of the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia that is opposed to immigration, as a condition of forming a coalition.
