Kurz had been a member of the Young People’s Party (JVP) since 2003 and was sponsored by Markus Figl.From 2008 to 2012, he was chairman of the JVP for Vienna.During his chairmanship, he led the youth campaign of the People’s Party in the 2010 Viennese state election and coined the campaign’s controversial electoral slogan Schwarz macht geil (“Black Makes Cool”), a play on the official party colour as well as the colloquial term geil which literally means “horny”.
Following the 2013 legislative election, Kurz took over the Ministry of Foreign Affairs from Michael Spindelegger. In March 2014, his ministry’s jurisdiction was expanded and was additionally vested with matters of integration. Kurz denoted Western Balkans relations to be one of his top priorities, which is why his first foreign visit as minister was to Croatia.Good relations with Israel is very important to him “for historical reasons” and for a positive cooperation with the Jewish community in the field of integration.
during the chairmanship of Reinhold Mitterlehner, many rumours arose within the media and the party itself, speculating that it would be more and more likely for Kurz to takeover the party before the 2017 legislative election and to run as the top candidate of his party in that election.In 2014, the daily newspaper Kurier already speculated on a possible top candidacy of Kurz for the next election.
On 1 July 2017, Kurz was officially elected chairman of the ÖVP by the Bundesparteitag (federal party conference) with 98.7% of the delegates vote and thereby almost achieved as much as his predecessor Reinhold Mitterlehner, who received 99.1% of the vote.
On 15 October 2017, Kurz and his party emerged as victorious from the 2017 legislative election, receiving 1,595,526 votes (31.5%) in the popular vote and thus gaining 15 additional seats, and thereby a plurality, in the National Council. As the leader of the party with the most seats after the election, Kurz was charged with the formation of a new cabinet by President Alexander Van der Bellen.
Since he did not obtain an absolute majority in parliament, Kurz decided to look out for a coalition partner to ensure one. The search turned out rather quick and the People’s Party entered negotiations with the right-wing to far-right Freedom Party on 25 October. Negotiations concluded successfully on 15 December and the incoming coalition presented its ministers list to the President. Van der Bellen assented and the Kurz cabinet was sworn in on 18 December 2017.
