Austrian far-right leader Joerg Haider has unexpectedly resigned as leader of the Freedom Party, but friends and enemies saw the decision as a tactical move aimed at helping him to become chancellor in the future. The 50-year-old populist firebrand announced late Monday that he was handing over the party leadership to Susanne Riess-Passer, vice chancellor in a 3-week-old center-right coalition led by conservative Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel.
