New Independent party rattles Liechtenstein vote

A loosely knit group of independent candidates, including a cross-dressing mechanic, surged Sunday to become Liechtenstein's third largest party in general elections that dealt a heavy loss to the prime minister's party. The brand new Independents, or DU, came out of nowhere to take 15.3 percent of the national vote and four seats in the tiny Alpine principality's 25-seat parliament, according to the official results. Its entrance into the house marks the first time the chamber will seat four parties.
