VIENNA Austria's far-right Freedom Party (FPO) on Wednesday formally contested the result of last month's presidential election, calling into question the count of postal ballots that swung the vote against its candidate.
Postal ballots pushed former Greens leader Alexander Van der Bellen past the FPO's Norbert Hofer in a tight run-off vote in which the margin of victory was less than 1 percentage point, or roughly 31,000 votes.
