Austrian chancellor proposes far-right interior minister be sacked

VIENNA (Reuters) - Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz proposed on Monday that far-right Interior Minister Herbert Kickl be sacked in the wake of a scandal that forced the leader of Kickl’s Freedom Party to step down.

Kurz told reporters he was making the proposal to Austria’s president, who has the power to dismiss ministers.
