Far-right FPO candidate Norbert Hofer is in the lead following the first round of Austria’s presidential election.
Hofer campaigned on an anti-immigration, anti-Europe platform.
First projections suggest he won more than 36 percent of the vote, public broadcaster ORF reports.
However, as none of the candidates appear to have reached the majority of more than 50 percent needed, he faces a run-off against Green Party veteran Alexander van der Brellen or Irmgard Griss, a former Supreme Court judge.
A second ballot is expected to be scheduled for May 22.
