Lord Walder, you have as an Unknown a of the more delicate Jobs, the most in the political landscape. How did it come about?
The party Executive had used after the options , a working group has contacted me. Since I have made myself available and was elected.
called Christoph Blocher ?
Yes, he was the President of the group. We have taken us, and Much discussed.
For example, the Compensation?
no, the party Presidium remains a volunteer, and rightly so.
How much of a percentage you work for the party?
If one starts from a 42-hour week, there are currently more than 100 percent. But this is an exception situation.
How you can afford the loss of income?
I'm a Partner in a smaller escrow company. We were able to reorganize at short notice – interim management is our specialty.
you will be in a year SVP-President?
My mandate runs until after the national elections. What comes after that is open. My current Bureau I see as a limited project.
"We need to be louder. Then we will be heard better."
You hear, they only have been second or third choice. Does it bother you?
I don't know of a list or sequence. I know only that I was requested, and what pleased me. Probably is also been noted that the dübendorf SVP has been truncated in the local elections a year ago, well above average. We have conquered the city Bureau to another city Council seat defends the seats in the Parliament held, and prevents the Red-and-Green in the government of the fourth largest city in the Canton of feeding.
Blocher kanzelte Yes like sections, which did poorly. You will be rewarded.
I hear this is not so, as you describe it. A reward is the wrong word. I see it as a recognition on the part of the party.
How was joining the company as SVP-President?
Very well. On the Morning after the long Assembly of delegates we have made us to work and asked us: What went wrong in the elections? What was in the party wrong? What was good?
SVP-moment of truth:
your analysis is?
Our people in the districts and sections have been very active and have supported Ernst Stocker and Natalie Rickli in your councillor campaign great. But we have to be transported to little good, what we stand for.
How do you want to change?
We need to be louder. Then we will be heard better. The word is a very powerful medium. To do this, it needs a simpler, clearer language.
Even easier? Still clear?
When we talk of foreign judges, not we make the lives of the people. I was never in front of the judge. When we say, however, that the framework agreement will bring much higher prices because the VAT doubled understands the needs of the population.
Is there not a danger that you will miss, because you overdo it?
All internal market-Related under the contract. The EU minimum rate of 15 percent. For me this is totally clear.
"There is no digging in the SVP. We are all standing behind the same party program."
your predecessor Konrad long-hard language of a trench between the gold coast SVP and the rest of the party. How do you get these?
There is no ditch. We are all standing behind the same party program, which was approved by the Assembly of delegates.
In the last few weeks, a different picture emerged. What you want to do better than the old party line?
We have to name the enemy and to unmask. Now we need to make it different than the old party leadership. Whether this is ultimately better.
"The party is not in a state of disrepair":
What if the SVP loses in the fall, in the Canton of Zurich 3 percent?
This will not happen. We will defend our twelve national Council seats, and with Roger Köppel, a Council of States seat conquer.
you really think it's realistic?
Yes, absolutely. Especially in the second ballot, anything is possible.
you have recently presented their election priorities. They are identical with those of Roger Köppel. The SVP is now the koeppel party?
program and of our are developed independently of each other. That there are significant Overlaps, only shows that Köppels analysis, what are the biggest problems for our country, is the right one.
discuss the framework of the EU Treaty, the immigration and warn of "climate panic". The population is worried, but because of the health insurance premiums, traffic and the climate.
You just have to see the big picture. The climate – or the environment – is impacted primarily by uncontrolled immigration. Who is not addressed, is a political Counterfeiters and does not want to tackle the Problem. Red-Green is the climate uses discussion to change the political System.
"That the climate is changing is obvious. The solutions to the Problem but are not bans. The economic approaches."
What should be changed?
Instead of the citizen of the state should take over the Power. The middle of the Red-Green Prohibit, Prevent and taxing.
the political corner sounds, this is already the case.
with regard to the bureaucracy, right. But fortunately, we still live in a free and democratic System that holds the responsibility of the people.
climate change, you recognize?
the climate is changing, That is obvious. The solutions to the Problem but are not bans. The economy provides the approaches. An example: The Euro 6 engines for trucks pollute the environment much less than the old. They came not but from the state, but are the result of innovative firms, which have convinced the population due to the lower consumption.
Could it be that the state has prescribed lower emissions and economy will respond with Innovation?
no, Innovation is created only if it is worthwhile economically. The state strangles you with Prohibited.
If the state of the economy leaves it up to himself, to save the climate?
If the policy has not hampered the progress, will find the technological solutions that benefit the climate.
According to their Smartvote profile, you are at the right end of the SVP. See you there, too?
I have always referred to as home cooking.
are you against marriage for all, your Vice-President Toni Bortoluzzi has homosexuals denigrated. The neue Zürcher SVP is an Anti-Gay party?
No way! But this is not a core theme of us, we have many self-confessed homosexuals in the party
Natalie Rickli has changed but your opinion, many other people also. The new SVP-governance is not next to the shoes?
We have adopted a party program, in the is No equality between marriage and registered partnership. I stand as President.
In the program is: no legalization of Cannabis. As they differ personally.
Yes, the Cannabis I put the emphasis on the own responsibility, but even that is not a core theme of our party.
her predecessor, long and hard, never to Herrliberg on the phone. You have a good wire to Christoph Blocher?
Since two weeks I'm on the phone a lot with members of the party. Since Christoph Blocher is one of them.
The whole SVP-leadership resigns:
