A false neighbor is hell

"So I have to admit that really got on my nerves." So a national Council about his neighbor expresses itself. His name, he does not want to publish dear. Not who has bothered him for the last four years in such a way. But he admits, what every parliamentarian confirmed secretly: Who has bad luck with his seat neighbor, is four years of hell.

On Monday, the Parliament will start in his 51. Legislature. National and Ständeräte meet your new seat neighbors. There are MP types, which are particularly feared. For example, the "slob": He piles on his Desk so many files, magazines, and stuff to swell that all the neighbors. Or the "Networked": His phone vibrates nonstop. It is feared the "noise": you crunches with the teeth, rustling continuously, hammering loud in the Laptop, and just can not sit still in the hall.

trouble with the fragrance brand

Finally, there are also those, on the one whispering in the Council. A FDPlerin, the perfumed so offensive, that it was unbearable for their neighbors, hardly was. The Reverse also occurred. The exhalation of a parliamentarian was so penetrative that a Pregnant woman had to be implemented in the vicinity. The former Lega chief Giuliano Bignasca came to the nights, sometimes in the Council chamber – without having to use a bathroom.

Regularly plump people had to be relocated because the normal seats were to tight for you. A SVPler with a deaf left ear, demanded to sit on the edge, so he could hear the other at all.

It runs like a Wilderness: The most Important wars of the places at the very top.

What is the national councils, this time with their neighbours good luck or bad luck, is just hard to come by. But a look at the new Seating plan revealed some spicy Details.

With voltage is expected, who must this Time in the "penalty box". This is the worst place in the hall. He is away, almost under the large Swiss flag. The SVP, see the space, this time the short hand of the Lega politician Lorenzo Quadri (no. 1 in the Seating plan, chart) slipped. The Ratslinke to be allocated to bad places like to splinter parties. This time the two representatives of the left were on the outside, Denis de la Reussille (no. 2), and Stéfanie Prezioso (No. 3), seats in the unpopular first series.

the Situation is Quite different in the case of Magdalena Martullo-Blocher (No. 4): it now has the seat in the back row taken over once their father had been sitting. Or SP-woman Jacqueline Badran (no. 5): she sits on the aisle, which is probably due to the fact that they almost always comes to late to the vote in the chamber.

is Not quite clear why the SVP-group cross-thinkers such as Lukas Reimann (no. 6) and David Zuber Buhler (no. 7) calculated in the first row. Insider's explain with the electronic scoreboard. It shows after each vote, which seat in the hall, as voted. If the dissenters to sit in the middle of the throng of a party, the unsightly holes on the panel. The party seems less closed.

The example shows how difficult it is to create the Seating arrangements. There are many unwritten laws. The most important is also known from the wild: The higher someone is, the more above (or the back of the room) he is allowed to sit.

The feet of the people in view

So here in the new legislature, the most influential members of Parliament. For example, the group leaders such as Roger Nordmann (SP, 8), Leo Muller (CVP, no. 9), Beat Walti (FDP, no. 10) and Thomas Aeschi (SVP, no. 11). Also the rear of the party, the President of Gerhard Pfister (CVP, no. 12) seats. Petra Gössi (FDP, no. 13) and Albert Rösti (SVP, no. 14). The novices need to work only high. The new CVPler Simon Stadler (No. 15)and Priska Wismer-fields (no. 16) sitting around as Only your party in the front row between the colleagues in the group of BDP and EVP.

The seats in the back are so popular, because you can quickly disappear to journalists and lobbyists, and also rapidly for votes on the court. Above all, it has the best views of the walk people to the front of the room.

The Drawing of the Seating plan is a highly complex task. Parliament's services have made a long time ago. You to share the groups, only in certain sectors, where it is needed this time eleven versions, until all were satisfied.

"It was complicated simply to," recalls John Clerc. He was, from 1992 to 2007, Deputy Secretary-General of Parliament. He tells of how the young Moritz Leuenberger did not want to at the time, sitting absolutely next to an "Iron" railway", " because you can exchange with the little "excited". Leuenberger, Minister of transport, was later.
