Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

First results from the Austrian elections (it's a slaughterhouse!)

Österreichische Nationalratswahlen 2008

Auszählungsgrad 46.96% (17:28)

Partei%Mandate
SPÖ29,558
ÖVP26,052
GRÜNE9,418
FPÖ18,436
BZÖ9,719
FRITZ2,00
LIF1,70

Pretty much none of the cities have reported yet, so the results might yet move up for the SPÖ. Haider's far-right BZÖ seems to be outperforming the polls. FPÖ about level with the polls, might yet drop. Not a good day for the conservative ÖVP, that much is already sure.

Update, at 71% counted (but Vienna has not yet reported anything):

Partei%Mandate
SPÖ29,758
ÖVP26,052
GRÜNE9,719
FPÖ18,236
BZÖ9,619
FRITZ1,90
LIF1,90

Seems pretty sure now that the liberal LIF is not getting into the parliament. FRITZ is a localist party from Tirol, not worth elaborating upon as most of Tirol is already in and they are therefore not going to get into parliament either.
