Outcome of Austria’s Presidential Election Hinges on Postal Ballots

If Hofer keeps his lead after votes by post are included, it will be the first case of a far-right head of state elected in the European Union since the end of World War Two.

Update: Far-right candidate slightly ahead as Austria vote-counting continues

      Undoubtedly, a moderate (?) Democrat for social programmes and for, say, gay stuff but anti-immigration. That’s what it usually means in Europe per our MSM.

    Probably the closest any EU country will ever get to a nationalist government as the former countries of Europe continue their slide into sharia states.

    Looks as though Austria will continue down the path to Islamic servitude and enslavement. My apologies for being the bearer of bad news… http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/24/world/europe/austria-presidential-election.html?_r=0

    “Far Right” is so misleading.
