FILE - In this May 22, 2016 file picture Norbert Hofer candidate for Austria's Presidency for Austria's Freedom Party, FPOE, smiles in Vienna, Austria. Austria's highest court ruled Friday July 1, 2016 that presidential elections narrowly lost by right-wing candidate Hofer must be repeated after his party claimed gross irregularities in the absentee vote count. Norbert Hofer was leading after polls closed. But final results after a count of absentee ballots put former Green party politician Alexander Van der Bellen ahead by only a little more than 30,000 votes. (AP Photo/Ronald Zak,File)VIENNA (AP) — In a potential new challenge to European Union unity, Austria's highest court on Friday ordered a rerun of the country's presidential election, giving a right-wing euroskeptic candidate a second change at the office after his narrow loss last month.

By William Schomberg LONDON (Reuters) - Finance minister George Osborne on Friday gave up his centerpiece policy of turning Britain's budget deficit into a surplus by 2020, faced with potential economic stress following the country's shock decision to leave the European Union. It was the latest setback for Osborne who was once considered a future British leader but who has not put himself forward to succeed Prime Minister David Cameron after the two men failed in their campaign to keep Britain in the EU. "The government must provide fiscal credibility, so we will continue to be tough on the deficit but we must be realistic about achieving a surplus by the end of this decade," Osborne said in a speech on Friday.
