Fact check: Will smash the ZKB agreement with the EU?

The SVP fires on all cylinders against the framework agreement and also at the cantonal level. On Monday, the Zurich-based SVP has been submitted in a member of the Parliament of a state initiative against the agreement, in which they demanded an "unconditional rejection" of the same.

In a press release she writes that Switzerland would otherwise, to "the right colony". At the same time, the Swiss people's party, in advertisements and on Twitter, in black paints, which would threaten our country and the Canton of Zurich in the event of a Yes.

We have some of these statements are subjected to a fact check.

The SVP of the Canton of Zurich, says: "The house would be smashed."

Christa Tobler, Professor at the Europe Institute of the University of Basel and an expert in European law, says succinctly: "This is nonsense." And the house itself tells, this allegation was unfounded.

but where do you come from? It is SVP Federal councillor Ueli Maurer, himself, warned, the cantonal banks could lose the state guarantees, when Switzerland signed the framework agreement with the EU. The state guarantee is a type of reinsurance for the cantonal banks, the Canton would be liable with its assets, would the Bank in bankruptcy. Except those of Berne, of Vaud and of Geneva, have all the cantonal banks of such a guarantee.

The EU's competition regulators are state guarantees, in fact, a thorn in the eye, because it can distort competition, and-wide ban on state aid are in conflict with the EU.

However, the prohibition is not absolute. The state guarantees would only check then, at best, and to repeal, if Switzerland were to conclude a financial services agreement with the EU.

indicate A possible loss of the state guarantee, as the smashing of the Bank, is however, plenty of adventure, even if one considers-as the SVP of it that the Bank is completely new would have to position.

The house itself denied the representation of the SVP. ZKB spokesman Patrick Friedli observes: "The Bank works in a way that is also without a state guarantee successfully. We can't rely on the state guarantee has to last forever. The question of the legal form is a political decision." So-called Stand-alone-Ratings showed that the Bank was also prepared without the warranty.

The SVP of the Canton of Zurich, says: "EU citizens will have full access to the Swiss social assistance."

in fact, the EU does not tolerate its members to foreigners less social assistance than pay for their own citizens. It says So in the much discussed Union citizens Directive. But: the EU-countries are allowed to restrict immigration in their social systems; the city of Leipzig, a Romanian who had worked either in Germany or in your home depending refused, the right to social assistance. By "full access" cannot be and speeches.

the fact is that the barriers to social assistance for EU citizens in Switzerland is somewhat lower, provided the Switzerland of the Union citizens Directive, would be undertaken. If it comes to that, however, is completely unclear. In the draft framework agreement, the Directive is not mentioned, Switzerland and the EU could not agree in this respect so far. Switzerland rejects a Takeover, and currently there is little evidence that they will change their Position at some point.

we, the Union citizens Directive would apply in Switzerland, then this would have on the one hand, some automation would be set. As a foreigner entering than not employed in Switzerland (such as pensioners), today, is not entitled to social assistance. In the future, his application would have to be tested. The unemployed foreigners had been in the first year of Residence claim for six months on social assistance, today, the first in the second year is the case. On the other, would be Established better: you can be reported if they relate to a long time and a considerable amount of social assistance, and even if they live 15 years and more here. In the future, an EU citizen would, after 5 years the Status of "Permanent residents", and could not be withdrawn only because of the welfare.

The SVP of the Canton of Zurich, says:

"EU-citizens' electoral will get in Switzerland."

Also this statement derives the SVP of the Union citizens Directive, specifically, the requirement that EU citizens are treated equally as nationals. In advertisements, you specified that it go only to the municipal electoral law.

However, political rights are not the subject of the Union citizens Directive. These are regulated elsewhere in the European law, says a European law expert, Christa Tobler. As the Union citizens Directive into the EEA was adopted, with the exception of political rights. "The Same would apply, if Switzerland is to transpose the Directive", says Tobler.

The SVP of the Canton of Zurich, says: "EWZ and EKZ shall not be a state."

A statement with a certain irony: The SVP has supported in the year 2001 the privatisation of the electricity utility of the Canton of Zurich (EKZ) and the voting citizens granted the request but a rebuff. Meanwhile, the party has, otherwise, as before, to advocate of privatisation – the economically thriving shopping center as a Dividend provider for the state Treasury discovered what the Lust dampens to a privatisation. The claim that the shopping center, as well as the municipal works should not be more government, the result for the SVP from the prohibition of state aid, the EU (and also in free trade with Switzerland). However, the Interpretation of the SVP is wrong. State-owned enterprises are not illegal in the EU.

the following might Happen: Would enter into Switzerland with the EU electricity market agreement would be investment in the electricity works by the public sector may no longer be allowed – but this would only be the case if these companies were in competition to other international competitors. The experts report to the framework agreement.

The EKZ see no Problem with the agreement, they voted explicitly in favour of it.

The SVP of the Canton of Zurich, says: "The citizen of the Union is right: create Deportation of criminal EU citizens' values."

The SVP and tells her since a long time, criminals, EU citizens would not be creating as often and consistently as it is the law or of the deportation initiative. Reliable Figures are not yet available.

it is true that the deportation law is already today in some contradiction with the free movement of persons agreement, because an automatic Deportation for certain crimes in accordance with the agreement on free Movement is permitted. Whether deportation procedures would be even more difficult, if Switzerland would accept the right of EU citizens (what it does not want to do), is controversial.

one way or the other course of the EU from any country to tolerate heavy criminal aliens, declared a European law expert Christa Tobler: "the agreement on free Movement, the possibility of persons to be excluded monkeys leaves, if they are, personally, a serious and present threat to public safety. If this is the case, must, however, be checked in each individual case." Just difficult for criminals and violent people are allowed to continue to be creates.
