Candidate running as a pirate on the Green party list. PPAT secured nr. 10 on the Greens list, which may secure a Pirate in the Austrian Parliament. The Maria Chlastak, she will run on a pirate campaign within the Green list. There are hopes within PPAT to have her on in parliament. There is an open invitation for the PPEU to help the PPAT and they will be in touch when and how help is needed.
