VIENNA (Reuters) - Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann expects the country's governing coalition to last until the next national elections, he said after Vice Chancellor Michael Spindelegger resigned.
"I expect it will hold until 2018," Social Democrat leader Faymann told a news conference on Tuesday.
Spindelegger, who was also finance minister, earlier resigned from all his posts, citing lack of support from his conservative People's Party over tax reform.
