"If the renewing of the European Union from the inside out is not successful, there is a referendum as a last resort. If the Union will not leave the wrong way of centralization, it should lead in Austria automatically to a referendum, because this is a radical change of our constitution," Hofer, who narrowly missed out on winning the Austrian presidential election last month, said.
"We assume that the European Union is going to rework the EU contracts because of the Brexit," Hofer noted.
The Austrian Freedom Party is currently contesting the results of the presidential elections in the country's Constitutional Court, with claims of irregularities in the procedure of counting postal ballots.
On June 23, UK citizens voted by a very slight margin for the country to withdraw from the European Union, contributing to a rise in the Eurosceptic mood in the bloc. The idea of Austria leaving the European Union has been already dubbed by media "Auxit", or Oexit" in reference to the country's name in German — Oesterreich.
