VIENNA, Austria – The leader of Austria’s conservatives Sebastian Kurz was sworn in Tuesday, January 7, as the world’s youngest democratically elected leader at the head of an unlikely coalition with the Greens following the collapse of his previous alliance with the far-right. Vowing to “protect the climate and the borders,” the 33-year-old has become chancellor of a government – called “exotic” and “unlikely” by Austrian media – that marks the first time the Greens have been in a national government in the Alpine country
