The new initiative called for an unconditional basic income for everyone. However, the request did not stand a chance when it came to collecting signatures.

It’s on the horizon, now it’s definitely. The popular initiative for an unconditional basic income has failed. Campaign manager Raffael Wüthrich confirms this to Blick. So far, only around 65,000 signatures have come together. With a safety margin, another 65,000 signatures would have been needed by the end of February. “We consider that impossible,” said the initiators.

Nevertheless, signatures would continue to be collected for the time being – the campaign team is assuming around 70,000 signatures until the end. These should still be submitted in March – as a sign of the concern.
