Swiss vote amid migrant fears

Electoral posters of Alois Huber, candidate of the Swiss People's Party (Schweizerische Volkspartei, SVP) for the Swiss National Council, are seen on haystacks at the entrance of the village of Kuettingen, near Aarau, on October 9, 2015Switzerland votes for a new parliament on Sunday, with the populist right expected to strengthen its already dominant position amid concerns over migrants and asylum rules. The latest surveys suggest Switzerland’s main party, the populist right-wing anti-immigration Swiss People’s Party (SVP), will make gains and possibly tip the scale in parliament towards a slight centre-right majority. The expected shift comes as surging numbers of migrants and refugees moving through Europe have heightened the focus on the issue in Switzerland, even though the wealthy Alpine nation has yet to be significantly affected by the crisis.
