Swiss nationalist anti-immigration party wins election

The Swiss People’s Party (the Schweizerische Volkspartei, or SVP) has received the highest vote ever recorded in Switzerland’s history in that country’s October 2007 elections.

The election campaign of the People’s Party concentrated on immigration issues, calling for the deportation of foreign criminals, with their election posters featuring white sheep kicking a black sheep out of Switzerland. The SVP also wants to stop Muslims from building mosque minaret towers.

The Swiss have been suffering immigration problems for some time. The Brussels Journal reports that foreigners make up almost 22% of the Swiss population, but they commit a disproportionate amount of the crime in the country; for example, in 2006 many of the identified perpetrators were foreigners: almost 50% of those committing assaults with bodily damage, 51% of murderers, and over 63% of rapists.

The SVP won 29% of the vote, making it the biggest party. Now having 62 of the 200 seats in parliament, the SVP is set to have a leading role in the country’s coalition government.

With Australia having a range of problems stemming from mass immigration, especially from Third World countries, the win of the SVP shows that a sensible nationalist party can achieve fantastic results with credible policies, the right people, and well thought-out strategies. We can win back Australia!

The Protectionist Party has been in contact with the SVP, congratulating them on their win.
