(EUobserver) Swiss likely to reject EU deal, warns president

(EUobserver) Swiss president Ueli Maurer on Sunday urged the European Union to renegotiate a deal governing future ties between the two sides, telling Swiss TV station Tele Zuri that Swiss voters would not agree to the proposed version if it comes to a referendum. “As things stand today, the framework agreement would not be accepted. So we would still have to make substantial renegotiations,” he said.
