Switzerland: Survey shows 51% against minaret ban
More than 51 percent of Swiss voters are against a right wing proposal to ban the construction of minarets in Switzerland, an opinion poll showed Thursday, in advance of a November referendum.
About 34.9 percent of those polled were ready to support the ban while 13.8 percent were still undecided before voting on 29 November, according to the poll published by the daily Tages-Anzeiger.
Some 51.3 percent would vote against the ban if the ballot took place next Sunday, the opinion poll showed after a right-wing poster campaign on the minarets was sharply criticised by Switzerland's anti-racism commission.
