Even if the President does not involve extensive powers, this can dissolve Parliament and appoint a new Chancellor.

Norbert Hofer is the candidate of the freedom party. Voted in Pinkafe ld in the East of the country. In the first round has collected 35 percent of the vote.

Alexander Van Der Bellen is the other candidate. Bellen voted Sunday morning in Vienna, competes as an independent but has the support of his former party, the Greens.

Among the various themes that mark the agenda include the crisis of refugees but also the disappointment with the traditional parties, the SPO and the people's Party, which since the end of World War II rule the country in alternation or in coalition.
