Austrian Chancellor Viktor Klima assured Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak during a phone call Saturday night that he will not include members of Jorg Haider’s far-right, anti-foreigner Freedom Party in a coalition government. The Freedom Party came in second in Oct. 3 elections, with more than 27 percent of the vote, according to preliminary results. It could slip to third place once more than 200,000 absentee ballots are counted.
