Austria has chosen the former Green leader Alexander van der Bellen to be the country’s next president, in what was one of the tightest presidential election races seen in Austria.

In the end, there was just a 0.6 per cent difference, with Van der Bellen receiving 50.3 per cent and Freedom Party’s Norbert Hofer receiving 49.7 per cent. Posting on social media, Hofer has also admitted defeat to his Green-backed opponent, thanking people for their support.

The win from van der Bellen means Austria did not become the first country in the EU to have ahead of state from the anti-immigrant far-right.
