(Christian-Social Party of Switzerland)

The CSP is a small Christian-social party to the left of the CVP, active in only five cantons. It has currently 1 seat in the 200-seat lower chamber of the Swiss Parliament (Nationalrat = National Council).
M. Schmöger, 29 November 2006

The CSP/PCS emerged in 1997 from the left part of the Catholic, mainly centrist CVP. It was represented in the national parliament from 1995-2011. It is currently not represented in the national parliament, but in the cantonal parliaments of Jura, Fribourg, Wallis and Zürich. The CSP Obwalden is a separated party, that had observer status in the Swiss CSP from 2005 to 2010. In the larger CVP there are still sections called CSP, thus the nomenclature is somewhat difficult.

The CSP has a logo consisting of a very stylized human being in turquoise combined with party name and abbreviation in German and French, all in black. The flag is a beach flag with the logo and a turquoise border [1,2].
