Austria's government will be unchanged after the incumbent Social Democrats and centre-right People’s Party agreed to form a new coalition. The announcement on Thursday, after 75 days of talks, follows inconclusive elections in September where the two parties secured 51 percent of the vote but lost ground to protest parties.
