(Lots of elections today!)
Voters in Switzerland today elected a new parliament.
The SVP [Swiss People’s Party] lost some 2.1 percentage points from the last election in 2007 but was still on track to be the biggest party with 26.8 per cent of the vote, according to a projection by Swiss television yesterday based on partial results. [Irish Times]
Not much change, but the story indicates that some smaller parties, rather than other major parties, have picked up the difference.
(Apparently this is my first-ever planting on Switzerland, so it goes in the generic “Euro-Mediterranean” block.)
