Swiss voters have rejected a proposal to limit the free movement of people from countries of the European Union, according to the preliminary results of a referendum that was held on Sunday.

A large majority of 63% voted in the binding referendum against the proposal of the right-wing People’s party which would have imposed restrictions on labor migration into Switzerland.

The Swiss People’s Party tabled the motion, expressing a desire to take away the European Union’s control over the country’s migration laws.

Switzerland had signed a treaty with the EU, which allows free movement from the member states.
