Austria presidential election set for run-off – ORF projection

Far-right candidate Norbert Hofer led Austria’s presidential election on Sunday but he faces a run-off against either Alexander van der Bellen, a Green Party’s veteran or former Supreme Court judge Irmgard Griss as none of the candidates reached the necessary majority of more than 50 percent.

Hofer, who run on an anti-immigrant and anti-Europe platform, won more than 36 percent of the popular vote, according to first projections from public broadcaster ORF.
