SVP-politicians Roger Köppel celebrates currently the Super-campaigner: "welcome to a world premiere!" it says on its Website. He was the first councillor candidate before the elections, all Zurich municipalities of visits. In fact, alone during the summer session in June, Köppel in the Canton of Zurich occurred in eleven municipalities.
the latest list from the Swiss Federal councils Absences shows, the monster tour, a negative impact on Köppels presence in the national Council. He was already in front of the Session at least present in Bern – he was missing at about 22 percent of the votes. However, in the June session he had with 41.8 percent, almost twice as high absence. The analysis of the data by policy.ch. Such values achieved so far, only the national councils, Peter Spuhler, Christoph Blocher, and Filippo Leutenegger.
in addition to Köppel also FDP national councillor Doris Fiala is striking. It is 37.2 percent only relatively slightly behind Köppel and far ahead of the Rest. Thus, she is the Vice-absences Queen.
Roger Köppel sees its record high absences in the last Session, no Problem, and criticized in the "Aargauer Zeitung", the "sprawling" debates in the national Council. "I think the closest contact with my constituents," he says.
Doris Fiala lacked, in particular, for professional reasons: "I'm a self-employed basis and, therefore, here and there abroad." Other commitments, such as the Bureau of the FDP women would have continued in her absence: "This must be in a militia system." Nevertheless, Fiala stressed: "all in All, my presence, in order, were the exceptions." Fiala came over the whole legislature seen on 10 percent absences.
"it is The. Participation in sessions of Parliament must be a high priority." Andreas Hugi, communication Agency Furrerhugi
it is noticeable Even if the other 35 Zurich members of Parliament in the summer session were more present than Köppel and Fiala, but that the other councillor candidate was missing and candidates relatively often. The green-liberal Tiana Angelina Moser is on rank 4, Daniel Jositsch (SP) on the 6th rank and Ruedi Noser on rank 12.
How many absences in National and state councillors still acceptable? For Andreas Hugi of the communication Agency Furrerhugi 40 percent absences clearly beyond the limit of the tolerance: "The more there is. For elected politicians attending the Parliament meetings must be a high priority." Nevertheless, Hugi wants to draw is not an absolute limit. There, the Parliamentarians made a lot of work in the Commission and in the plenary debates here and there were missing. "The could possibly have to do more for the country than backbenchers with less absences."
"I think the closest contact with my constituents": Köppel is filming in the foyer.
Also, for Hugi is clear that you could not require in the militia system, always in full presence. Who lead a company or other mandates take, should also lack of time. The election campaign legitimising absences up to a certain degree: "If I am prepared for my re-election, and my party, do I finally also have something for my constituents," says Hugi. A complicity in the relatively large number of absences, he looks at the associations, which were in his opinion too little attention to the scheduling in Bern.
The former FDP Secretary Andreas Hugi is now in Zumikon school President and the local Council. For him, the attendance of meetings of the Authorities "Holy". He lacks a maximum of substantiated and, exceptionally, maybe once in a year. The most important is to be always and everywhere accessible. (Tages-Anzeiger)
