The Swiss Federal Assembly has approved an exception to the ceiling for public expenditure in order to finance the purchase of the Saab Gripen E fighter jet, according to a statement from Saab.

"Today's vote, with an absolute majority of 27 for and 17 against, means that the deal has received the support needed in both chambers," Saab wrote.

A decision on the Gripen deal is expected to be made in the Swiss parliament's two chambers on September 27th.
