The Swiss political landscape has a new party: delegates from the Christian Democratic Party (PDC) on Saturday accepted the merger with the Bourgeois Democratic Party (PBD), which said yes two weeks ago. The new entity will be called ‘The Center’.
The merger was accepted by 336 yes against 25 and 2 abstentions. A three-quarters majority of the 363 delegates was needed. The quorum was set at 273 votes.
