The Austrian federal government Vranitzky V was formed after the National Council election on December 17, 1995 . It followed the previous cabinet Vranitzky IV , from which it differed little in terms of personnel.
The Vranitzky V cabinet was appointed by Federal President Thomas Klestil on March 12, 1996. Previously, there had been changes in the Vranitzky IV cabinet, which he had entrusted with the continuation of the business, which had been unusual until then.
On May 1, 1996, the competencies of individual ministries were changed: The two federal ministries for the environment and for youth and family (both under Martin Bartenstein) were merged into one department called the environment, youth and family. The ministries for science, research and the arts as well as for public economy and transport (both under Scholten) were combined to form the science, transport and art department. The agendas for public economy (formerly called nationalized enterprises) were transferred to the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the economic department was filled on June 16, 1996 after the resignation of Johannes Ditz .
The cabinet was in office until January 20, 1997, when Franz Vranitzky resigned after more than ten years as Chancellor. It was then entrusted by the Federal President with the continuation of business until January 28, 1997.
