VIENNA - Austrian conservative leader Sebastian Kurz, who secured victory in Sunday's parliamentary election but fell well short of a majority, does not rule out the possiblity of forming a minority government once the final result comes in.

"I would of course like to form a stable government. If that cannot be done then there are other options," he told broadcaster ORF, adding that he planned to talk to all parties in parliament but would first wait for a count of postal ballots that begins on Monday.

That count will settle the close race for second place between the Social Democrats and the far-right Freedom Party.
