Tamara Funiciello why you want to quit as President of the Juso ?
I do this now for three years, and I'm not getting any younger also. We now have members Born in 2009! I've done a lot for my presidency, and I was able to a lot of implement. Now it is time to go one step further.
What have you implemented?
We have super staff at the party, hell, motivated women, and were able to haul many in cantonal parliaments. In Bern, Luzern, Zug, Graubünden, Zurich, Basel-land, because we have moved a lot. I helped the women's network in and outside the party to expand, this week, we have submitted the 99-percent-Initiative, and now – as the last project of my presidency, we the cause of reduced working time. This will be the next big fight.
you can look Forward to after her time as Juso President not constantly be indignant? no. Outrage is my main driving force. If I'm not outraged, I'm out of politics.
her male predecessor Cédric Wermuth and David Roth were also controversial figures. However, in the case of anyone, the Situation escalated as quickly as yours. Why?
women in Public, sexy characters. . Young and politically is difficult as a constellation. And then when you're still a woman! With A Migrant Background! There's a lot of coming together. For many, too much. I corner stop really everywhere, even in the elderly intellectuals of the Left. The have complained on a regular basis, when I slipped on the Radio, a "Gopferdammi" out of it.
honestly: Was the constant Cursing really necessary?
so much I don't swear now and again – and plan to, I don't do it. I like talking to me d'purring gwachse. So I'm holding.
When you called a year ago to the Song "079" as sexist, they were suddenly the most hated Person in Switzerland. How do you deal with it?
Which leaves traces. But you always have a maniacal focus on the hate. I also get a lot of support. Also during the 079-outrage. I have experienced in addition to the hatred, too much solidarity. And it goes above and beyond: several Times per week to older ladies talk to me and thank me for my work. That one does not talk just as often.
you have not at some point just enough of the hostility? And this has played no role in your resignation?
no, that played no role. I am no longer in office, than my male predecessor.
politics as a spectacle. How sustainable is that?
When I look at our party: very sustainable. We have an extreme increase in young women, so many of the young people involved. The young people are feeling outrage, and the need to get out somewhere. This is the way it should be.
The political Marketing may work for their own party, for the content, it looks slightly different.
no! Today we also have with us a well-established discourse about the Hatespeech that would not have been three years ago. A week after the 079 event, we made a media conference on violence against women, and the hall was full. Also it used to be different. We have influence on the political issues in this country. We don't provoke just to provoke.
Also on Pay equity, the Juso have pushed a discourse. The bonuses have bolted while its still up. You don't change anything.
It took forty years to the AHV. And with the 99 percent Initiative, we attack the rip-off. Constant Dripping!
The Shrill and Loud and Simplistic: Make the Juso not exactly the same as the right-wing populists who despise you so?
we Are Juso populist? Yes. Is that bad? No. Us it comes to content. In the case of the foreigner baiting the Right with the background that these people are worth less. We do not, however, call to beat up the Rich. That is the difference. But that we are copying some recipes for success, Right, is clear. If you understand populism in a way that complex content is understandable to all, we are full of it.
you said that Juso to be the "thorn in the ass" of the SP. Did it go well?
The cooperation with the SP was not as difficult as it is sometimes in the media. To have 95 percent, we Match it with the SP. To five percent.
This five per cent, relate to existential questions: is the pension scheme, the new corporate taxation.
Yes. Because we keep these topics to the self-defined red lines. Partially in contrast to the SP. At the same time we achieved a lot together – we have to call together the women of the year, has me very happy.
Pleased, in this connection, also, if men like Cédric Wermuth or Roger Nordmann, a candidate for the Council of States?
in The end this is a decision of the cantons.
Now you sounds like an elected national councillor and not as the Juso-Boss.
Stop! It is true just! Of course I would have liked more female candidacies. What you have to the SP but, to its credit: In any of the other party attaches such a high value on a balanced representation of the sexes – in the national Council of the women in the SP group in the majority. And we had to tilt in the Canton of Berne, nine women of the national Council list – because we already had so many other good women. There is no other party!
In the autumn you want to be in the national Council is elected, their chances are intact. You will then see a Tamara Funiciello, a little less escape?
If the majority in the national Council remain, I will still be a lot more swearing.
you Have completed your degree in history in the meantime?
no, not yet. It is obviously a physical rule that one can make as Juso-President or President of a Bachelor's ... But I have it now. (Editorial Tamedia)
