According to the Die Presse newspaper, the government is supposed to agree with this proposal.
Austria's Constitutional Court said on Friday that the last presidential elections, held on May 22, would need to be repeated.
“I can confirm that there is a proposal from the Interior Minister [to hold a re-run on October 2]. But the decision has to be taken by the Federal Government together with the National Assembly. Decision-taking is expected for Friday this week,” Karl-Heinz Grundböck said.
The final decision on the date of Austrian presidential election re-run will be made on Friday, a spokesperson for the Interior Ministry told Sputnik on Tuesday after country’s Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka proposed to hold the vote on October 2.
