After counting about 90% of the votes during the second round of the presidential election in Australia, both candidates gain about the same number of votes, the Associated Press reports.

Recall that for the post of President of Austria are fighting Norbert Hofer, representing the right populist Austrian freedom party, and former leader of the «green» Alexander van der Bellen.
