VIENNA (Reuters) - Austria’s opposition Social Democrats will submit a parliamentary motion of no-confidence on Monday against Chancellor Sebastian Kurz and his government, the party’s leader Pamela Rendi-Wagner told broadcaster ORF on Sunday.

Rendi-Wagner was speaking after a meeting of her party’s leadership, which decided in favour of the motion and would recommend that its lawmakers express no confidence in the government, Rendi-Wagner said.
