Austria's Greens, the junior party in the coalition government, are seeking alternatives to governing with Chancellor Sebastian Kurz in talks with other political parties that started on Friday, Greens leader and Vice Chancellor Werner Kogler said. Prosecutors have placed Kurz under investigation on suspicion of corruption offences, which Kogler told reporters called into question Kurz's ability to act as chancellor, adding: "That has prompted us to sound out other possibilities with other parties in parliament."

Kurz, who denies wrongdoing, has said he is innocent until proven guilty and is willing to keep working with the Greens.
