"Swiss voters backed moderate forces in a general election Sunday in which nationalists failed in their effort to break through the 30 percent barrier with a campaign heavy on anti-immigrant sentiment. The nationalist Swiss People's Party, or SVP, was projected to take 25.3 percent of the vote for the lower house, a drop of more than 3 percent on four years ago, according to public television station SF's latest projections."
