Headline: Self-determination initiative weakens Switzerland: Federal Council recommends a no
Switzerland relies on stability and reliability. Therefore, in the vote on 25 November 2018, the Federal Council and Parliament recommend a no to the self-determination initiative. The initiative puts international treaties at risk, creates great legal uncertainty and endangers Switzerland as a business location. The protection of human rights is also weakened. More self-determination does not bring the initiative. Because even today Switzerland itself determines which contracts it concludes or terminates. For the Federal Council, it is clear that the initiative does not protect Switzerland's successful model – it endangers it.
