Single-party Government: from People’s Party to Socialists

  • Elisabeth Barker


Austria’s first one-party government — the People’s Party government of Josef Klaus — lasted for its due legislative period, and then rather surprisingly suffered defeat. Its four years in office, from 1966 to 1970, had outwardly been successful. In external relations, the South Tirol dispute had been settled, and Austria had been able to launch a new and more hopeful approach to the Common Market; Klaus’s policy of ‘active neutrality’ had stood up well to the severe test of the invasion of Czechoslovakia by the five Warsaw Pact countries in 1968.
