Austria's foreign minister is on course to become the country's next chancellor and the world's youngest head of government.
Sebastian Kurz, 31, has declared victory after near-final results from Sunday's election put his People's Party on 31.4%.
That figure is not enough for an overall majority, meaning he would either have to form a coalition or a minority government to become chancellor.
The eurosceptic Freedom Party is in second place with 27.4% and the centre-left Social Democrats are third with 26.7%.
Both Mr Kurz's People's Party and the Freedom Party have focused their campaigns on concerns about immigration and Islam.
If projections are correct, it could herald a coalition between the two parties - which would mean a rightward turn for Austria.
