SÖZ aims to take part in 2020 local elections in Vienna, Gördü added.        

Far-right policies are driven by well-known political parties and organizations, he said, added that SÖZ party also aims to fight against far-right policies.       

"We are not an immigrant party. We are not immigrants, we were born here and we are Austrians," Gördü said.
