Most readers will remember the closely-contested second round of the Austrian presidential election, in which the Green candidate eked out a narrow victory over the FPÖ candidate, thanks to a large number of postal votes that tipped the balance. There were “irregularities” in the voting process, to the point where the FPÖ is officially contesting the result.
Now a new twist has emerged: it seems that the mental competence of the president-elect, Alexander Van der Bellen of the Green Party, has been thrown into question. According to the report, back in March an unnamed party petitioned to establish a guardianship for Mr. Van der Bellen, due to his impaired mental capacity.
Note: If the date is correct, the petition was filed before the first round of the presidential election.
