Austria's Freedom Party Leader Heinz-Christian Strache

Austria's Freedom Party took 20 percent of the vote with a campaign that included anti-immigrant policies strengthened in the 1980s by former leader Jorg Haider, who governed on an anti-immigration, anti-Muslim, anti-EU platform until he left in 2005. Current leader Heinz-Christian Strache is known for his anti-immigration sentiments and has even said Europe runs the risk of becoming a "conglomerate of negroes ... where chaos multiplies [through] mass immigration."
