Parliament against UN seat on neutrality grounds
Parliament could force the government to remove its candidacy for a seat at the UN Security Council.
Switzerland could be selected to serve as one of the countries reserved for Western Europe in 2023.
But several MPs say it’s incompatible with the country’s neutrality.
While the right-wing Swiss People’s Party has always been against the idea – now more MPs from centrist parties agree.
The government says neutrality is not a contradiction and adds the country is well placed to forge alliances.
