It is a significant setback for the SVP. You will be staying in Zurich with 24.5 percent of the voters-strongest party, has lost significantly: to 5.5 percent, and all nine seats in the cantonal Parliament. The previous government Council Ernst Stocker to reach the line in a safe third place, but Natalie Rickli made it just in the government. After the party has already lost last year in the Zurich municipal Council and in many other municipal elections is a further proof of the downward spiral, in which the party is located. And not a good sign for the national elections in the autumn.
According to the medical record after this defeat in the party. Claudio Schmid (SVP, Bülach, Switzerland) tweeted yesterday that he will now try to renew with a new and young Team, the SVP in the Canton of Zurich. On enquiry he says that he thinks of himself, as well as a member of the Parliament René Truninger, national councillor Barbara stone man and the national Council Claudio Zanetti. Zanetti had lost the battle of the Zurich SVP-Bureau of 2016. Since then, the party leads Konrad long and hard. Long and hard, was not himself yesterday in the responsibility for the defeat. You have to analyze them first. "If I'm responsible, and I'm Reflections on the resignation," he said. He was elected, nor for one year and does not want to Meissen in the begging just to quit.
"let's Cut bad, I will be beheaded"
Some of the critical questions will need to be long make hard tomorrow, Tuesday at the Board meeting of the party. In this session, it is actually especially the nomination of the Council of States candidates, which is what the Councillors Roger Köppel and Alfred army have advertised. However, since the meeting was placed last week on a date after the cantonal elections, the election result is probably also an issue.
For the Council of States, the candidacy of the army has collected with yesterday's result, no points: As a campaign Manager, he is one of the main responsible for the poor performance of his party. During the election campaign kick-off at the beginning of the year, the army had said, when the SVP lose in Zurich see it bad for the Federal elections. This concluded the army: "I'm counting on you – it goes around my head. We cut bad, I'm beheaded." The euphoria he's not triggered at that time. Beheaded, he is not likely to be now, but it is a bitter defeat for the army.
SVP-voters are left in the urn remote
Apparently, it is not managed by the SVP, to mobilize their own voters. This is the weak performance of the government Council candidate Natalie Rickli on the one hand, and the great voters of losses showing on the other. All the bourgeois parties have lost, but not as strong as the SVP. It is not to be assumed that many of the SVP-voters and voters changed the election winners GLP and Green. It is more likely that they remained in the urn. President hard for a "mobilization a problem acknowledged yesterday". It has succeeded in the Green better to bring your voters to the ballot box. "The climate debate has not helped us."
In fact, the SVP has had little answers to the pressing question of climate change. On the contrary, The SVP denies man-made climate change and discredit the young people, who demonstrate against climate change, as "child soldiers" whose actions "are orchestrated by adults". (Tages-Anzeiger)
