Der Wandel (English: The Change) is an Austrian left-wing progressive political party led by Fayad Mulla.[1] It is part of pan-European coalition DiEM25.[2]

Background[edit]

The party was launched in 2012[3] as a progressive, anti-capitalist and egalitarian movement. Its positions are detailed in the "Demokratische Moderne (English: Democratic Modernity)" maifesto, which emphasizes on abolishing global capitalism and establishing a democratic economy, fair to all people.[4]

In November the party announced an alliance with Yanis Varoufakis' DiEM25 for the upcoming European Parliament Election. The party's political director Daniela Platsch will be in the second place of the joint list led by Varoufakis.
