A total 67.9 percent of Swiss voters cast their ballots Sunday to rein in executive pay and force business leaders to give up golden parachutes, according to final poll results.

The federal chancellory, which announced the outcome, said all of Switzerland's 26 cantons had passed the initiative -- a rare occurrence.
