World IN BRIEF : SWITZERLAND : Rightist Party Gains in Parliament Vote

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Switzerland elected a new federal Parliament in elections highlighted by strong gains for the Auto Party, a small rightist group that is urging radical curbs on the admission of foreigners. However, projections based on early returns from all 26 cantons indicated no major change in the overall political pattern of the country, which has been governed since 1959 by a conservative-liberal coalition of the four largest parties. Final returns are not expected until today.
