Austrian President

It seems like Liberals don't like democracy.....

What type of person cheats the democratic process so that they get the "right" person to be President? Is Austria some sort of "banana republic"?

"Austria’s constitutional court has annulled the result of the country’s presidential election, which saw a narrow defeat in May for rightwing populist Norbert Hofer.

The court president, Gerhart Holzinger, announced on Friday that the run-off vote between Hofer of the Freedom party and Green-backed Alexander Van der Bellen would have to be repeated across the whole country after an investigation revealed irregularities in the count of the vote in several constituencies."
