i'm quite sure that this kind of initiative would pass in many countries...unfortunately.
i dont see it as unfortunate at all..

i would love there to be some initiate to try and stop people committing serious crimes.. because at the moment, something isnt working..

it would just be hard to pull something like that through.
(there goes my german-english again..)

Aaaaaargau has voted "YES".

Re: What if? Consequences of expulsion initiative being accepted?

Wow, this is looking grim. I didn't go for double no because it was clear that one of the two things would be accepted (sorry, but I know how this works - all the lefties will cry out in anger but they'll forget to vote when it comes down to it...), so I chose the "more sensible" variant in the hope that it would win over the SVP thing. Not looking good at at all.

you don't see it as unfortunate that it is restricted to foreigners?

Re: What if? Consequences of expulsion initiative being accepted?

Anybody suggest a good site to see the results? I am looking at Tagesanzeiger but it seems to be a long way behind the game.

Re: What if? Consequences of expulsion initiative being accepted?

as usual, basel votes a big no. i really dont understand this: from svp logic, basel should be one of those hot spots, yet the people vote against it...

Re: What if? Consequences of expulsion initiative being accepted?

Wallis voted YES to initiative....surprising.
Neuchatel voted NO
Vaud says NO
Bern says yes
BS is less conservative and more open than BL, so not surprising that they voted NO

Re: What if? Consequences of expulsion initiative being accepted?

Looks like it is going to be a Yes

Quote:
Projections issued by the gfs.bern polling institute showed 53 per cent voting in favour of a rightwing initiative. The initiative also appeared to have won the backing of a majority of cantons.

Turnout was higher than usual - at 52 per cent - a sign of how controversial were the issues being voted on.

Re: What if? Consequences of expulsion initiative being accepted?

I read somewhere that the government has 5 years to enact it. So I am not expecting it to happen overnight... No need for anyone here to panic...yet!

I've just heard by word of mouth that it is indeed a yes. Checking on the 20min site appears to confirm this.

http://www.20min.ch/news/dossier/abs...ommen-24310285 sorry german only.

I've also heard from a "politically active" associate that there's going to be a "demonstration" at Helvetiaplatz tonight. How big I've no idea - this is afterall rumour, but my scource is generally correct, so I'd avoid Helvetiaplatz and Langstrasse tonight.
