(Guardian) Switzerland's supreme court has overturned a nationwide referendum for the first time in the country's modern history, on the grounds that the information given to voters was insufficient.

In a ruling that may resonate in Britain, where remain campaigners have long argued that voters in the 2016 Brexit referendum were not adequately informed, the court said incomplete detail and a lack of transparency had violated the freedom of the vote, which could now be re-run.

"Given the tight outcome of the vote and the seriousness of the irregularities, it is possible that the result of the ballot would have been different," the federal court said.
