Susanne Thier is the longtime girlfriend of Austrian politician, Sebastian Kurz. Her man is set to become the contry’s youngest leader.
Kurz who is the former Foreign Minister and head of Austria’s People Party, has declared victory in a national election that puts him on track to become not only his home country’s youngest ever chancellor but also, the world’s youngest leader.
Mr Kurz has rocketed up the ladder in Austrian politics, entering government in 2013 as foreign minister just three months after being elected to its parliament. He has quickly established himself as a fervent sceptic of the expanse of the European project, and he has not been afraid to lambast its failings after Britain voted to leave it.
Kurz was born in Vienna, where he still lives, on August 27, 1986. He attended the University of Vienna –where he earned his law degree –and also completed Austria’s compulsory military service.
He began his career as a member of Vienna’s city council –while there he focused on pensions and intergenerational fairness. Kurz is yet to be married, however, that soon may change as he is dating the lovely Susanne Thier.
