The Swiss People's Party is to attempt to organise a Switzerland-wide referendum on immigration. The referendum will call for quotas and selectivity in the admission of immigrants. If implemented, the proposals would undermine Switzerland's agreement with the European Union.

To call the referendum, the SVP needs to collect a certain number of signatures, which it will almost certainly be able to do. There is a good chance this referendum will succeed, ushering in a new crisis for the European Union.

As we saw already in the minaret ban, Switzerland's referendum-based direct democracy gives its people a greater opportunity to stand up to their deranged political elite.
