Alexander Zach in 2008

Alexander Zach (born 10 September 1976) is an Austrian politician and former member of the Austrian Parliament (2006 – 2008). He has been the head of the Liberal Forum from 2001 to 2008. Although his party did not run the elections of 2006, Zach was given a seat on the SPÖ as a result of an alliance whose aim was forestalling another term of Wolfgang Schüssel as chancellor.[1] Only five days before the Austrian legislative elections in September 2008 Zach resigned his position as head of his party after being accused of lobbying for EADS.[2][3]
