The Alliance for the Future of Austria ( German: Bündnis Zukunft Österreich (BZÖ) ) is an Austrian political party founded by Jörg Haider and other prominent members of the Austrian Freedom Party (APS) on April 4, 2005 . This was followed by the split of the APS (during which the founders of the Alliance were expelled from the APS, and the entire party organization of the APS in Carinthia followed its charismatic leader, transferred to a new party and became its core), the withdrawal of the APS from the government coalition with the Austrian People's Party (APS here replaced the Alliance for the future of Austria, which had the posts of two ministers and the Deputy Federal Chancellor) and the fall in popularity of the APS in the elections to the Landtags . On the other hand, the Alliance for the Future of Austria was unable to win over voters and showed even lower results in these elections. Heider left the party because of disagreements with Heinz-Christian Strache , Andreas Meltzer.

In March 2009 , after the elections to the Carinthian landtag, a party meeting was planned during which a new party leader was to be elected. First, the only official contender for this post was Stefan Petzner . However, on November 15, 2008, at a special party meeting in Klagenfurt , another candidate, Uwe Schoich, was nominated. 
On March 1, 2009, elections to the Carinthian landtag took place, during which the Alliance for the Future of Austria received about 45 percent of the vote (which is 3 percent more than during the previous election). This allowed the Governor of Carinthia Gerhard Durfler to continue his powers, which were vested in him after the death of the former Governor of Carinthia, Jorg Haider. 
On September 13, 2011, the party's new general secretary, Bündniskoordinator , was elected - Marcus Fowland. [four]
