Austrian-Canadian billionaire Frank Stronach Tuesday announced he will be quitting Austria's parliament, 16 months after founding Team Stronach, a rightist party campaigning for Austria to leave the eurozone. The 81-year old spent €30 million on the campaign, scooping 11 parliamentary seats in September's elections.
