Green Party see initial gains in Swiss polls

The Greens made strong gains in Switzerland’s election on Sunday while the far-right party lost ground, early results showed, potentially putting environmentalists in the mix for a seat in the coalition that has governed the country for decades.

The Green Party rode on voters’ concerns about climate change and could dilute the centre-right parties’ grip on power. It never had a seat in the four-party Federal Council.
