Switzerland: SVP promises to halt mass immigration
Election candidates for the far-right Swiss People's Party, Switzerland's biggest, signed a "contract with the people" on Sunday promising to deport foreign criminals and halt "mass immigration".
The "contract" also promises to fend off any moves for Switzerland to join the European Union.
About 200 party candidates for October parliamentary polls signed the document, printed on parchment, before a thousand party loyalists at a ceremony in Zurich.
