Christian Wasserfallen is a professional. For the past 15 years, he makes policy, rose from a Bernese school Commission to the Vice-President of the FDP Switzerland. The only creates who is resilient, quiet and thoughtful.
hit the floor As the Bernese national Council, but on Saturday the newspaper, he was overcome by a rage. The water did not fall, what experts recommend in such situations. He went on the social media.
In a side Interview with this newspaper took place, the FDP President Petra Gössi abundance of u-turn on Saturday an amazing climate policy. In mid-December the free mind had refused to accept a flight ticket tax and a domestic target for CO2 reduction, and hence the Failure of the CO2 law in the national Council contributed to. Now, two months later and under increasing public pressure, said the FDP-President, your party wants to save the CO2-law. The FDP offered Hand for a domestic destination, and is also not against a ticket tax. In addition, all 120'000 FDP would be questioned-members in the next few weeks about their goals in environmental policy.
Only the inner circle informed
"What, you can learn everything from the newspaper," tweeted water fall after the reading of Gössis Interview. He supported the "effect lots of airline ticket taxes" is not. You should keep "in an election year, a cool head".
Many of the other senior free Democrat, should be surprised. Several party cadres confirm that Petra Gössi turning your Climate party has internally matched only in the narrowest circle. Only group President, Beat Walti and the General Secretariat of the party are said to have been inaugurated. The six Vice-presidents, the party Executive and also for the CO2-law of the Commission responsible politicians have been left in the dark.
In the case of the political competition, the reactions to Gössis change of course were very colorful. SVP-group President Thomas Aeschi accused Gössi, "in election mode" in the Left-hand charm. "Pressure helps," said meanwhile, the Green-President Regula Rytz. SP-group President, Roger Nordmann, a cast that, unfortunately, only after the elections can be seen is, what is the value of I promise Gössis.
"We should trust the liberal, fact-based way."Bruno Pezzatti, FDP-Nationalrat
Within the FDP, the mood is confusing. From the cantonal parties Gössi gets partial praise. But at the Federal level, it is noisy. Christian water want to add fall to his Tweet, nothing more. Many other members of the group but in the current climate course of the FDP.
One of them is Thierry Burkart. He will support measures that help the climate really, says the national Council. In the past, the party had used for effective instruments, for example, in the case of the continuation of the building programme. The air ticket levy and a domestic target, he reject. "These measures symbol policy."
Beat Walti tried party internally to settle
Virtually identical to the national Council Bruno Pezzatti comment: "We should rely on the liberal, fact-based way." Pezzatti attacks in addition, councillor Ruedi Noser. Unfortunately, party members were recently the Committee of the glaciers initiative, joined with an illiberal ban on culture-active, Pezzatti. "Such, probably more electorally motivated u-turn I can not understand."
FDP faction President, Beat Walti is trying, meanwhile, to settle internal party. Gössis media Intervention, he is welcome. "So far, we have not managed to liberate us from the corner into which you have put to us after the winter session in the wrong." The FDP standing goals of the Paris Climate, and we have always expected that after the consultation in the Council of States in the CO2-act nor the differences discussed. "I don't see any turnaround."
