A Turn To The Right In Switzerland


The hard right's victory in Swiss elections on Oct. 19 is likely to spell the end of Switzerland's consensus politics and to complicate the country's relations with the European Union. Opposed to closer EU ties, the Swiss People's Party, which is led by controversial industrialist-turned-politician Christoph Blocher, scored more votes than any other party.
