I congratulate Alexander Van der Bellen on his success and ask all Austrians to stick together and to work together.

Austria’s Norbert Hofer has conceded defeat after his hopes of becoming the European Union’s first far- (‘middle’ as NH defines it)-right president failed.

The first official results showed left-leaning candidate Alexander Van der Bellen with what appeared to be an unbeatable lead over his rival.

 When the results were released shortly after polls closed on Sunday, Mr Van der Bellen had 53.5 per cent, while Mr Hofer had 46.4 per cent.
Norbert Hofer has posted on his Facebook page, thanking his supporters and congratulating Van der Bellen.
‘I congratulate Alexander Van der Bellen on his success and ask all Austrians to stick together and to work together’, – says Hofer’s message spread by social media.
