What you may read everything about this new Parliament: the Younger is a female, progressive, and, therefore, very susceptible for the relevant precepts of the time. Equality is about. Or transparency in the professional representation of interests, i.e., when Lobbying .
this evening, shortly after 18.30, it was then, the certainty. The first political business of the legislature of the national Council , in principle, for the creation of a lobbyists register, said. Professional stakeholders with an access badge to the Federal Parliament will in future have to disclose for which clients you through the foyer on the strip. The Declaration duty also applies to the many former parliamentarians, with your network and your life-long access to the Federal house of interest groups, clamp.
After the old national Council had in June with a clear majority against the Register pronounced, were the opponents of the SVP and CVP are now in the minority. Firstly, due to the strengthening of the left-liberal camp. Secondly, because the FDP has changed the page. The Bernese majority, which was long each Lobbying issue in dispute; it moves so still!
The Badge System creates an unhealthy dependence of the lobbyists, by the politicians.
- fixed the shortcomings of the Swiss policy? The systemic risks of Corruption? The information vacuum in the policy of financing? The Cronyism, if in property, plant, and commissions are hardly more politicians with no relevant affiliations seats? Of course not. But there is evidence that this Parliament takes the momentum and in the next few months, some of these problem zones of the Helvetic democracy:
Switzerland has no transparency in the policy financing. Under the impression of various people's initiatives, a half-dozen Ständeräte want to introduce now a duty of disclosure for donations starting at CHF 25’000. SVP, FDP and CVP rejected the proposal so far. But dissenters could provide in the three parties for a breakthrough.
Cross-bearing, there are also Sukkurs for a containment of Lobbying in parliamentary commissions. A term limit could prevent some of the few politicians to prevent with industry mandates, permanently reforms.
With the new Majority, the disclosure of perks of members of Parliament could receive a new Chance. In the Council of Europe, many Swiss politicians have already their income.
Still, it is the parliamentarians who get lobbyists to personally access to the Federal house and to the foyer. The Badge System creates an unhealthy dependence of the lobbyists, by the politicians. The former is the temptation of politicians to keep up with donations in the mood to like quickly. A System with an ordinary registration, as it exists for the media was rejected by the old Parliament, could now revive.
