Austrian Foreign Minister and new conservative leader Sebastian Kurz will meet Chancellor Christian Kern on Monday and suggest that they jointly propose a snap parliamentary election be held, Kurz said on Sunday.

"I will meet Chancellor Christian Kern and President (Alexander) Van der Bellen tomorrow and make a suggestion," he told a news conference.

"From my point of view the first step must be that we reach a joint decision in favour of snap elections," he said, adding that he wanted the election to be held after the summer.
