The Piratenpartei Österreichs (official abbrevation: PPÖ) is the pirate party of Austria.


The first party, founded by Florian Hufsky, offically registered in July 2006.

The first effort to contest an election in 2006 failed due to a lack of letters of support. On March 14, 2010, the PPÖ ran for municipal elections for its first time in the city of Bregenz and received 1.62% votes, but not enough for a seat.

In 2011 internal conflicts lead to a breakup of the pirate party Austria.

A new pirate party was founded on the 9th July 2011.


The new party is currently organising.


  • Board (5 members, including chairman)
  • Financial and member administration (2 members, including treasurer)
  • Party's council
  • Council of federal states
  • Federal state organizations
  • Task forces

There are 5 out of 9 possible state organisations in:

  • Salzburg
  • Tirol
  • Upper Austria
  • Vienna
  • Vorarlberg
