Austrians Vote  for New President

Austrians Vote for New President

The outcome is unclear as Austrians vote for their next president. But one thing is nearly certain: For the first time, the winner is unlikely to be a candidate supported by either of the two mainstream parties that have dominated politics since World War II. Voting began on Sunday with the latest polls showing support of 11-15% for contenders backed by the Social Democrats and the centrist People’s Party, AP reported. That’s well below the 21-24% of voters who support Norbert Hofer of the anti-immigrant Freedom Party and Alexander Van der Bellen and Irgmard Griss, who are running as independents. No candidate is expected to get a majority on Sunday and a runoff will likely be necessary on May 22. That is expected to pit Hofer against Van der Bellen or Griss.
