The internationally renowned top model, was at the invitation of the Green site and looked at the political and operating a day-long close-up. In the meantime, it has considered Glauser. You want to run for the Greens in the autumn, such as the "Blick" reported.

The choice of opportunities for the political newcomer are intact, the number of Zurich examples from the past show, as a country, and people stormed the lists. In the national elections in 2015, there were three prominent Zurich names that shook up the election campaign: Köppel, Guldimann, and Martullo-Blocher.
