Switzerland likely to vote on biannual clock changes
It’s likely voters will have the final say on whether Switzerland will follow the EU on abolishing changing the clocks twice a year.
The European Parliament has voted to abolish the time change from 2021. Each country will be free to decide if it will stay on winter or summer time.
Jürg Niederhauser from the Federal Institute of Metrology says Switzerland will not want to be out of step with neighboring countries, so will probably only make a final decision after Germany has chosen.
Either way, voters are likely to be asked if they want to abolish the time change and then if to stay on summer or winter time.
It doesn’t change the fact the clocks go forward this weekend.
