Swiss to hold a Lockdown powers referendum

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

Switzerland will hold a referendum on whether to strip the government of its power to impose lockdown measures.

Campaigners handed in a petition with 86,000 signatures on Wednesday, well above the 50,000 required to trigger a nationwide vote under the country's system of direct democracy.

The Covid-19 Act, passed in September last year, has infuriated the famously liberal Swiss as it grants central government unchecked powers to impose indefinite rules to stop the spread of the virus.

Wow, a sane country.  Who would have imagined one of those in the world in 2021?  I hope the put some firm checks in place.
