Parties and immigration

Hello, I wanted to know the Swiss politics better. It'd be important for me to understand who're the parties more geared towards receiving foreign workers and those who are less (UDC I guess...)
Thanks!

Re: Parties and immigration

Generally Balkan Beats and Latin type parties tend to be more welcoming towards immigrants, whereas the kinds of parties held by farmers in big tents with Landler music might have something of a more circumspect attitude towards foreigners.

But it's impossible to generalise.

Take enough booze with you, and everyone will love you wherever you come from.

Party on!

Why? You can't vote for any of them.

Re: Parties and immigration

I meant political parties.

I want to know about political parties because I live in this country and their decisions affect my and everybody's life.

Thanks for the answers.

Re: Parties and immigration

Why not visit their websites and get the information first hand?

Any views in the press or here will be affected by the bias of the person writing, you should make up your own mind.

There's a list here:

https://www.ch.ch/en/elections2015/p...in-the-nation/

Google Translate will probably do a good enough job on the websites to make sense of them.

Local matters are also more relevant in Switzerland than in many countries, so check the local press or party details. Or take the "Keine Werbung" sticker off your postbox, you'll soon get plenty of info from them!

There's also http://www.parlament.ch which gives lots of details including actual voting in the parliament.

Re: Parties and immigration

There is also this site: https://www.smartvote.ch/?lang=en_GB

They use a questionnaire to match your answers to the candidates/parties which answered them most similarly. You can also look at how the individual parties/candidates have answered the questionaire, without doing the questionaire yourself.

None of the parties is against restricting the inflow of foreigners

In most cases this should probably be called "dumbvote".

The bit showing actual responses to the questions, with comments, is very good, but I just fear too many people wouldn't bother going any deeper than the percentages result.

In my case the result suggested only marginally covers my actual political views, and the first candidate I have any positive opinion of only made it to number 9 on the list. I only did the short version of the test though. maybe the longer version is more accurate.
