Christian Social Party

(swissinfo.ch)

The Christian Social Party has its origins in the Christian Social movement, which arose in Catholic conservative circles in the 19th century. It later splintered off from the Catholic conservatives to form its own party.

The Christian Social Party stands more to the left of the political spectrum and is based on the principles of Christian social teaching and social ethics. It has parties in the cantons of Fribourg, Graubünden, Jura, Lucerne and Zurich and over the past few decades has achieved around 0.4 per cent of the vote.
