Hilmar Kabas.

Hilmar Kabas (born 6 January 1942 in Vienna) is an Austrian politician of the Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ).[1]

Kabas studied law at the University of Vienna.[2] He was mainly active as a local politician in Vienna and held the position of the state party leader between 1998 and 2004.

When most leading members of the FPÖ left the party to found the new Alliance for the Future of Austria (BZÖ) in April 2005, he suddenly found himself in the position of the interim national party leader (as the most senior member of the party's steering committee). In that function, he formally expelled former party leader Jörg Haider from the FPÖ.[3]
