SWISS VOTE 50.4% IN FAVOUR OF CURBS ON IMMIGRATION

ZURICH (Reuters) – Swiss voters on Sunday backed proposals to reintroduce immigration quotas with the European Union, a polling agency and Swiss television reported – a result that calls into question bilateral accords with the EU and could irk multinational companies.

In a nail-biting vote, 50.4 per cent backed the so-called Stop Mass Immigration initiative, which also won the required majority approval in more than half of Swiss cantons, or regions, Swiss television said.
