Nearly two-thirds of voters in Switzerland approved the government’s plan to introduce same-sex marriage in a referendum held on Sunday, September 26.
According to official reports, 64.1 percent voted to legalize same-sex marriages, with Zurich having the highest number – 69 per cent – of ‘Yes’ voters in the country.

The result makes Switzerland the 30th country worldwide – and one of the last in Western Europe – to extend civil marital status to same-sex couples. Credit: Tom Barnwell via Storyful
