Van der Bellen defeated Hofer by a slender margin in the presidential run-off in May, after he had finished in second following the first round.
However, May’s election results were declared void in July, after Hofer’s party challenged the result of the presidential election won by Van der Bellen by a mere 0.6 percent, with claims of irregularities in the procedure of counting postal ballots.
