problem : replacing my light switch

Hello, i'm not pro, but I've changed several jacks and switch plates by looking at the old wires setting and applying it to the new ones, but this one is confusing.

this is how my old switch looks like :

This is the New Switch Light
ImageShack - Online Photo and Video Hosting

I couldn't figure this out, the new switch has 4 holes for each Button while the old switch has 6 holes all merged.

please look at this as well :

Any ideas please ? thank you

Welcome to the forums! Are you REALLY from Kentucky? We don't see many switches like the one you describe in the states.

Didn't think it looked like anything we encounter here. Maybe one of the other pros on the forum can lend a hand, but mostly North American posters here.

In that picture you are showing a yellow, white and green wire.

Do you know if the green wire is a ground wire ?

If it is.... then you only need a single pole switch where the switch would connect the white to the yellow.
