Austrian politics and the demise of parties

Melanie Sully writes in the "Wiener Zeitung" on the governmental crisis in the Austrian coalition precipitated by the resignation of the leader of the ÖVP. A successor claims full power of the party machine aiming to build a movement, a recipe which bore fruit in France and the UK with Corbyn. This throws up challenges for inner-party democracy.
