Aus­trian pres­i­den­tial election comes un­stuck

The Myanmar Times - - World -

Aus­tria was forced to an­nounce an em­bar­rass­ing post­pone­ment of its Oc­to­ber 2 pres­i­den­tial election be­cause of glue fail­ing to stick on postal votes. The de­fec­tive vote en­velopes have glue on the top edge and on the side. These come un­stuck and the flap can still be eas­ily opened and closed even af­ter 20 to 25 min­utes. In­te­rior Min­is­ter Wolf­gang Sobotka said they are go­ing to re­quest that par­lia­ment ap­prove a post­pone­ment.
