The Austrian political landscape is unsettled

The head of Austria's Greens party has resigned from all party functions and is giving up her seat in parliament.

Eva Glawischnig said her decision was personal and prompted only by her wish to remain in good health while caring for her children.

Austria's political landscape is in turmoil. The governing centre-right coalition has agreed to part ways and hold early elections on October 15 while the opposition Greens have been shaken by recent infighting which has alienated some supporters.

No successor has been announced.
