Anti-Immigrant political party in lead in Switzerland

January 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

The right wing Swiss People’s Party appears to be holding on to the lead ahead of October’s parliamentary election, a nationwide survey says. The party has dominated the early stage of the campaign with anti-immigration issues and is gaining ground. Claude Longchamp, a political scientist, does not hide his surprise at the large margin of at least 12% between the People’s Party and its political opponents. He attributes the strong showing to a general political mood marked by increasing immigration as well as last November’s ballot about the automatic deportation of foreign criminals. The institute’s findings are also in line with those of a recent worry barometer which ranked immigration and integration top of the list. (swissinfo.ch)
