Ironically, the former SVP Federal Councilor Adolf Ogi (80) made sure in the state government that a majority demanded the start of EU accession negotiations, i.e. only the start of talks for membership and not already about the accession itself. This shows after 30 years Protocols from the Federal Council published for the first time.

And it was precisely this application for membership that was the decisive factor in the fact that the EEA vote on December 6, 1992 failed. 50.3 percent of those who voted rejected joining the European Economic Area.
