Switzerland demands EU referendum as frustration at relationship with Brussels boils over

SWITZERLAND has dealt the European Union a major blow as the outgoing president called for a referendum over the country’s relationship with the bloc.

 

 

President Doris Leuthard said a referendum was needed to sort out how the nation worked with the European Union.
Ms Leuthard said: “The bilateral path is important. We must therefore clarify our relationship with Europe. We have to know in which direction to go.
“Therefore a fundamental referendum would be helpful.”
Switzerland has a unique relationship with the EU.
