Switzerland to leave Schengen

 
Switzerland to leave Schengen
The largest party in Switzerland is making plans to leave the Schengen agreement. The Swiss People's Party (SVP) said already in 2010 that Schengen was a disaster. They have not changed their mind since.

Vice chairman of the party, Christoph Blocher, said in an interview with Tages-Anzeiger:

“If we see that the law to implement [a 2014 vote to curb immigration] does not massively reduce immigration, the People’s Party will launch an initiative to end the free movement of people“

The party has always said that if the disadvantages are greater than the benefits of a Schengen membership, the agreement must either be renegotiated or terminated.

The reason for Schengen now being discussed is that 50.3% of Swiss voters in 2014 voted for SVPs proposal to impose limits on immigration from EU and EFTA countries. The Parliament has three years in which to implement the decision. The deadline is February 9, 2017.

The problem is the Schengen Agreement, in which Switzerland has committed itself to EU's open border and free flow policy. They go into negotiations on the matter with Jean-Claude Juncker on September 19.
