    Austria's president says his country won't lurch to the right, despite the announcement of a new government featuring the far-right Freedom Party.

    31-year-old Sebastian Kurz, who leads the more moderate People's Party, is set to be the new chancellor.

    But the Freedom Party will control several of the most important ministries.

    Al Jazeera's Paul Brennan reports.
