Ulrich Habsburg-Lothringen

Ulrich Habsburg-Lothringen (born 1941 in Wolfsberg, Austria) is an Austrian Lord, forester and politician, who was formerly in the Green Party of Austria, but is now non-partisan. He is a member of the Austrian Imperial Habsburg Family and wanted to participate the election for the Austrian Federal President in the 2010 election. However, being member of a ruling or formerly ruling family, he was not eligible to do so. That law has been cancelled since, so he can now participate. He thinks about another try for the next presidential election, which will be held in 2016.

He is the cousin of former Austrian Crown Prince Otto von Habsburg. All parties in the Austrian National Council voted for allowing members of ruling or formerly ruling families to participate on national elections.

Another of Ulrich's proposal is to re-introduce nobility titles in Austria. The Green Party, of which he was member, does not support his proposal. The right-wing FPÖ supports it though.
