Student representatives at Austrian theological training centers voted in part with an absolute majority for left (extreme) groups
Vienna (kath.net/rn) The ÖH elections held in Austria have once again shown that student representatives at theological training centers are in some cases predominantly dominated by left (extreme) groups. For example, at the Private College of Education of the Archdiocese of Vienna, nearly 27 percent have voted for the Green Party, 17.5 percent for the Socialists and even 1.44 for the Communists. Thus, the left there reaches more than 47% of the vote. An absolute majority was almost reached by left groups at the Catholic Theological Private University in Linz. More than 32.47% voted there the Greens, almost 12 percent the Socialists. The Communists came in there at 2.6 percent. With that, the left reaches 49.36%. The absolute majority (56.22 percent) was finally reached by the left at the Private Pedagogical University of the Foundation of the Diocese of Graz-Seckau. There, more than 38 percent voted for the Greens and 13.5 percent for the Socialists and 4.3 percent for the Communists. This number is topped by the Private Pedagogical University Foundation Burgenland (Diocese Burgenland). There, the left-wing groups reached 59.15 percent (33.80 Greens, 24 percent Socialists and 1.4 percent Communists). These numbers are only related to the fact that with 26%, the turnout in the ÖH elections is extremely low and 3/4 of the students ignore these elections.
