Several Swiss sources are reporting that a committee has been formed to push a referendum against the FATCA (Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) agreement which Switzerland has recently signed with the US. The committee has 100 days to gather 50.000 signatures for the referendum to go ahead.
Members of the committee include:
– the Lega Nord, a right-wing anti-immigration party.
– The Swiss Pirate Party.
There do not seem to be public opinion poll results yet on the possible outcomes of a referendum.
