Hofburg election: Griss does not want to run again

In the 2016 presidential election, Griss won 18.9 percent as a non-party candidate and narrowly missed the run-off election with just 2.4 percentage points fewer than Alexander Van der Bellen. Griss then successfully ran as the Styrian top candidate for NEOS in the 2017 National Council elections. She got a mandate and acted in Parliament as the justice spokeswoman for the pink ones. In the 2019 election, Griss decided not to run again. In addition, the now 75-year-old Styrian was also head of the hypo investigation commission and the child welfare commission.

Regarding the current discussion about filling posts in the judiciary, which broke out in the wake of chats by OGH Vice President Eva Marek, the former President of the Supreme Court regrets “that the impression now arises that a position can only be achieved if one party pushes “. As a judge, she always saw it as a great advantage “that performance decides”. After all, careers in the judiciary – with the exception of only the President and Vice President of the Supreme Court – would always be based on a proposal from a staff senate. For Griss, of course, it would be the “ideal solution” for a judiciary council to decide on all staffing.
