The constituency of Mistelbach (constituency 12) is a constituency in Lower Austria that includes the political district of Mistelbach . In the 2013 state elections , the Austrian People's Party (ÖVP) emerged as the strongest party with 57.3%, with the ÖVP also being the only one of the candidate parties to win two of the three basic mandates in the constituency.
Lower Austria was divided into four constituencies until 1992, with the Mistelbach district belonging to the district under the Manhartsberg . With the state election order of 1992, the number of constituencies was increased to 21 and the Mistelbach district was raised to its own constituency.
Since the creation of the constituency, the Austrian People's Party (ÖVP) has achieved an absolute majority in every state election in the Mistelbach constituency. The result of the ÖVP fluctuated between 55% and 60%. The ÖVP was able to achieve at least one of the three basic mandates in every state election in the constituency of Mistelbach, and since 2003 it has achieved two basic mandates in every state election in the constituency.
The Social Democratic Party of Lower Austria (SPÖ) took second place in every state election in the constituency, although it has so far missed a basic mandate in every state election. In 1993 the SPÖ reached 28.4%, and subsequently it came to 25 and 28% in state elections. Thereafter, the SPÖ slipped with losses of 5 and 3% in 2013 to only 19.1%, which means that the SPÖ in the constituency also came in below the Lower Austrian national average.
The Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ) has been able to take third place in three of the five elections in the constituency of Mistelbach, and in 1998 it achieved its best result to date with 14.3%. As a result, however, in the course of the Peter Rosenstingl affair, it fell to 4.4% and thus landed in fourth place behind the Greens in 2003. After the FPÖ was able to increase again to 9.5% in 2008, it fell back again in 2013 with 7.8% and again took fourth place behind the Stronach team.
The Greens - The Green Alternative were able to increase slowly but gradually from 2.8 to 6.8% between 1993 and 2013, whereby in 2003 they benefited from the weakness of the FPÖ and were able to advance to third place in this election. In 2013, however, the Greens fell back to fifth place when the Stronach team (FRANK and TS) competed. The Stronach team, on the other hand, was able to get 8.4% of the votes right away when it ran for the first time, which made it third among the candidate parties in 2013.
