VIENNA (Reuters) - Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz will face a motion of no-confidence in parliament on Monday, lawmaker Peter Pilz said, adding that he would submit the motion to the lower house on Monday.

“I am quite certain that it will succeed and that I will manage to ensure that Kurz will no longer be chancellor on Tuesday,” Pilz, an environmentalist who founded his own small rival party to the Greens, told Reuters.
