Swiss federal votes on June 9: what’s on the agenda?

Two initiatives aimed at limiting healthcare costs will take centre stage when Swiss voters go to the polls on June 9. Citizens will also decide on a new energy law and on a proposal to cement in law the right to refuse vaccination.

The relentless increase in the cost of mandatory health insurance is a major concern for the Swiss population. As a result, political parties are now trying to address the issue, and on June 9, two separate initiatives are on the voting agenda.

One of the people’s initiatives, launched by the left-wing Social Democratic Party, wants to limit the cost of health insurance premiums to 10% of a household’s income. To achieve this, it proposes that the state pick up the slack with subsidies whenever somebody exceeds this proportion. According to the plan, at least two-thirds of the new financial help would come from the federal budget, with the rest being paid by the country’s 26 cantons.

Above all, the Social Democrats want to help those who are currently struggling to pay their health insurance bills. However, it also aims to level the playing field: subsidies in this area already exist to some degree, but their amount differs considerably from region to region.
