Austria’s populist conservative party has filed a complaint contesting the presidential election vote on 22nd May, which the party lost by a razor thin margin of 31,000 votes.
Violations in counting votes occurred in 80% of the electoral districts in Austria, Freedom Party leader Heinz Christian Strache said at a press conference attended by lawyers.
A total of 573,275 postal votes were opened and sorted into valid and invalid votes before a commission arrived. In some cases, unathorized persons counted the votes.
In every district in Vienna, votes were opened before the time allowed by the law and an uncontrolled selection of votes was made.
Strache also noted teenagers under the legal voting age of 16 were allowed to vote.
In addition, the Ministry of Interior published “test” data predicting the result one day before.
The Constitutional Court will take four weeks to reach a decision whether to order a recount of some district votes or a re run of the entire election.
The basis of the 150 page complaint submitted by the populist conservative party are irregularities in postal votes in the run off between Freedom Party candidate Norbert Hofer and Green Party leader Alexander van der Bellen, reports Die Presse.
Austria has played a key role in closing north Europe’s borders to an unprecedented influx of migrants.
Populist Freedom Party candidate Nobert Hofer campaigned on a platform of reducing migrant flows and holding a referendum on the TTIP, but was defeated as a result of postal votes by establishment “open borders” candidate van der Bellen.
The massive election fraud was uncovered by the general public, and not by the authorities.
