The Swiss looked set to reject three issues put to a popular vote Sunday, including calls to cap immigration in the name of saving the environment, according to the public broadcaster and initial results.
Results published by a handful of cantons, including Geneva, showed voters had flatly rejected the so-called Ecopop initiative, as well as bids to scrap special tax breaks for rich foreigners living but not working in Switzerland, and on forcing the central bank to increase its gold reserves.
A full 78.4 percent of voters in Geneva had rejected Ecopop, according to results from 95 percent of votes cast.
