Gapany is the first Freiburg Councillor of state and the youngest ever to Stöckli selected a woman. The Economist, cantonal and municipal Councilor from the COP provoked with a courageous election campaign, the removal of the CVP-States and former Council of state Vonlanthen Beat. She promised nothing less than a "new kind of political sierens". She wanted to work for future generations, and always make sure that the results impacted directly on the company.
Without mentioning a name, accused the 62-year-old Vonlanthen on the election platforms, to exclusively pursue their own interests, to be of lobbyists controlled and to speak the solution proposed. At a panel discussion Gapany complained: "I have made during the election campaign with concrete proposals, and you contradicted me just all the time."
Vonlanthen had a heavy Stand. In addition to political opponents and journalists have raised in the election campaign stages, the question of whether he's not in too many boards of Directors seats and to very for be network work. The 62-Year-old fought back, that a Council of state, must have exactly such networks in economy and society, in order to fulfill his work. The voters saw it clearly different.
FDP suffers because Maudet
Up to the choice of the free citizen Johanna Gapany, the Geneva Green Lisa Mazzone, the youngest ever elected Councillor of state was. Lisa Mazzone is also 31 years young, but a year and a half older than the free Democrat. As in the first ballot, distance you and Carlo Sommaruga (SP) your civil competitors Hugues Hiltpold (FDP), Béatrice Hirsch (CVP) and Céline Amaudruz (SVP) in the second ballot, far more than 10000 votes. The Trend to a sharply tapered Parliament and more women will continue with it.
At the Geneva result is striking as well that Mazzone has distanced the 60-year-old SP-man Sommaruga, the politicized since the age of 16 in the national Council, by almost 4000 votes. The civil bearing of the FDP, CVP and SVP broke with a turnout of 32 percent – the lowest in decades – completely. In national elections three weeks ago, the turnout had still amounted to 38 percent.
"We have had a sincere and transparent election campaign," said Lisa Mazzone on their election and spoke in the name of Carlo Sommaruga. The free Democrat Hugues Hiltpold lost, meanwhile, for the antics of the FDP-Council of state Pierre Maudet, against the Prosecutor's office leads a criminal case, because of acceptance of benefits. Hiltpold said: a Lot of people would have made him during the election campaign, obviously, because Maudet was impossible to choose a free-minded. In Geneva, the FDP and CVP have failed, therefore, once more, the last three Legislatures lasted for the dominance of the Greens and the SP in the Council of States to break through.

Four years ago, the incumbent councillor Olivier Français (FDP) managed in the second ballot, to make a Comeback. 19000 votes the residue, he had councils after the first ballot to the President of the national and candidate to the Council of States inside Adèle Thorens Goumaz (Greens) and Ada Marra (SP). His election result was disastrous.
In the second ballot, won the French finally, with a 3000-vote lead on Thorens Goumaz and even with 10000 votes on Marra. The 63-Year-old said his Comeback with "a lot of work". Français had to. especially in the case of the SVP and the green liberals like to thank the FDP came in the second round to help "The civic Alliance has worked," said the Vaudois FDP-President Marc-Olivier Buffat. And the Bourgeois opted for the Green Thorens Goumaz, which has also in agricultural circles of good relations, and against the SP-Mrs. Marra. Thorens said, "the left-wing voters have compact voted, the Bourgeois have mobilized their voters but incredible".
sadness prevailed because the seat loss in the Vaud SP, which is represented for decades in the Council of States. You now need to reappraise a lot of things. Already criticism has been voiced, should have been put in place Marras on the national Council and group chief Roger Nordmann and Pierre-Yves Maillard.
