An environmentalist candidate has a clear lead in Austria's presidential election, projections showed on Sunday after polls closed, dealing a blow to his rival's bid to become the first freely elected far-right head of state in Europe since World War Two. If confirmed, the re-run result will be a relief for Europe's political establishment and a vindication for former Greens leader Alexander Van der Bellen, who narrowly defeated Norbert Hofer of the anti-immigration Freedom Party in the original runoff in May, before the re-run was ordered. Van der Bellen had a clear lead over Hofer, according to a projection by pollster SORA for broadcaster ORF that included a partial vote count.

Austrian presidential candidate Van der Bellen, who is supported by the Greens, and his wife Schmidauer leave polling station in ViennaVIENNA (Reuters) - Far-right Austrian presidential candidate Norbert Hofer's campaign manager conceded defeat on Sunday to former Greens leader Alexander Van der Bellen. "The bottom line is it didn't quite work out," Herbert Kickl told broadcaster ORF as initial projections showed Van der Bellen leading with a score of around 54 percent to Hofer's 46 percent. "In this case the establishment -- which pitched in once again to block, to stonewall and to prevent renewal -- has won," he said. (Reporting by Michael Shields; editing by Francois Murphy)
