So, in favor of the amendments on the bike path in favor of 73.6% of voters, against 26.4 per cent, said in a statement on the website of the government of the Confederation.
However, the referendum rejected the initiatives to strengthen control over imported foreign agricultural products and the prohibition of the use of GMOs for production of food (61.3 per cent against 38.7 per cent for).
