He seemed to have a minor miracle last September: SVP-group chief Thomas Aeschi managed that the party rejected the AHV-control-template. He stood out even in the influence economy, politician, Magdalena Martullo from rich-Blocher, had voted several times previously to the public. The "world week", celebrated the national Council and President of the SVP train to as "SVP-movers".
Aeschis victory was short-lived. The last success he was able to at 16. January celebrations, the Zug cantonal party shortly after the age of 40. Birthday the no-Parole gave. Since then, the oars slipping away from him rapidly. At the Assembly of delegates from the 30. March promoted SVP Federal councillor Ueli Maurer decided for a Yes. Finally, the party leadership saw only one way out: The voters-strongest party, share voting decided in one of the most important business of the legislature.
Seven out of ten say Yes
The base proves to be less tame, more and More cantonal parties, the even-Slogan of the business – seven there are already, all with very clear majorities, in the last week, of Zurich, Schaffhausen and Thurgau. In all three cantons of the Department of Finance is in the hands of the SVP, a " no " would have disavowed the own local councillors.
the SVP for OASI-tax-template language But also in the Canton of Lucerne, after Franz Grüter, had advertised in the national Council, nor among the critics, for a Yes. In Geneva, neuchâtel and Vaud came to the Yes Slogan also with clear majorities. Say no so far, only two cantonal parties: in Addition to train Basle-city where the party grabs the opportunity, SP Finance Director Eva Herzog, attack.
More Yes-slogans are expected to follow: In Bern, Vice-President and national councillor Andreas Aebi expected today, "at least approval voting", after regional bodies have for a Yes. In Freiburg today, SVP national councillor Jean-Francois Rime is present in front of the slogans replaced by the template. As President of the trade Association he is a supporter.
A memorable meeting is to be expected in the Canton of Schwyz, where Swiss people's party councillor Peter hair dryer will speak. He is a member of the economic Commission, in which the template was created. He wore them first, contained in the Council of the voice and is now back to the supporters.
In a tricky Situation, the SVP has backed its Solothurn offshoot. The cantonal implementation comes at the 19. May, together with the national template to the urn.
"Chance for Solothurn"
In the Solothurn cantonal Parliament, the party has shaped the business and not that of the tax rate increases on dividends. Party President and national Council of Christian Imark rank then to a double Yes, "because I see it as an opportunity for the Canton of Solothurn", he says.
At the party meeting in the last week, it seemed as if the cantonal guide by pressing – until the guest of the mother party's election campaign chief, Adrian Amstutz, and his opinion was asked. The Bernese national Council recommended voting share. The Solothurn SVP and ultimately decided both on the national as well as cantonal referendum question.

The group had not contacted very skilled, complain about members behind their hands. Aeschi rejects the criticism: The group have decided according to objective criteria. "Our Assembly of delegates has shown that you can weight the good and the bad elements of the template in different ways," says Aeschi. Ueli Maurer, about had to represent the opinion of the Overall Federal Council, which was nothing out of the ordinary. "At the end of about the same number of cantonal say parties Yes, or no, which corresponds to the vote share of the SVP in Switzerland," Aeschi convinced.
But even in the Canton of Zug criticism of his strategy will come along. SVP-Finance Director and the Council of States a candidate Heinz Tännler, the "Sunday newspaper" said recently: "For me, as a cantonal representative, it is unclear if policy-makers in our party to stand against the template." Were meant Thomas Matt, Magdalena Martullo-Blocher and Thomas Aeschi.
