4 DECEMBER - WHO WILL WIN THE AUSTRIAN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION 2016 ?
The candidate for Austria’s right-wing populist Freedom Party has a narrow lead in the polls ahead of the Austrian presidential election in December.
Mr Hofer has been given a boost by Donald Trump’s populist victory in America and the anti-establishment vote for Brexit in the UK.
If he wins the election, National Front leader Marine Le Pen will seize on his victory to further her campaign to become the next French President.
Ms Le Pen and far-right Dutch politician Geert Wilders could ride the wave of populist revolt to win the French and Dutch elections in 2017.
If Mr Hofer triumphs, he will become Europe’s first far-right leader to be elected since the end of the Second World War.
