Term limits instead of withdrawal seizures

Makes affectionate. Who has you once, you do not give them often. Powerful people are in demand, courted for their opinion. Some can do without.

About Kathy Riklin. The Zurich CVP national councillor shall examine, in the autumn, in the national elections. And, although it has been sitting for 20 years in the national Council (first election took place in the 20th century. Century); although it has not reached the age of 66 the pension age; although her party, the CVP, the want. No matter. Riklin is on a list. If you can defend your office, is uncertain. Sure is A elegant finish is different.

the Parties To such withdrawal convulsions to spare, there is a simple way: the term limit. In many democracies, the state can be chiefs just twice select. The same is true in some places for members of Parliament. Power can bales less, if your carrier more often change. Temporal barriers make it difficult to Govern the same. Therefore, authoritarian rulers hate those borders, you deal with Tricks (see Vladimir Putin) or create them (see Xi Jinping).

to prevent Much of a lead for long-Familiar

Switzerland is a good accumulation of Power. The Federal President changes every year, citizens can brake with referendums. Towards the clingy, it shows itself generous. Federal councillors and members of Parliament are not allowed to stay as long as you want (if de-selecting it). In the first half of the 20th century. Century, died two Federal councillors in office, after 29 years of service.

There are always attempts, makes barnacles separate by law from the Power to. The FDP national councils Isabelle Moret and Christian water, the term of office of the Federal councils wanted to fall to around eight years limit. BDP national councillor Hans Grunder found: Twelve years is long enough for the national councils. The initiatives failed in the Parliament. A politician not weaken. Would be founder of a 12-year cut in 2017 entered into force, had 29 out of 246 members of Parliament exceeded "your shelf life" how the online platform "Watson" is calculated.

Switzerland will have to adhesives not a Problem with "Chair", say the restriction opponent. Experience to help in the policy. And, above all all four years will be elected. The rich as a control. The Problem is the re-election Argument: the Former are usually much better known than New, because they occur more frequently in the media. This gives you a lot of advantage. Parties to set a matter on the Previous, they promise Seat. This mechanism leads to an unwillingness of younger politicians and regular renewal.

Board memberships as a replacement

That the state is working in spite of restrictions, was in the city of Basel. There the people, in 1966, decided that cantonal members of Parliament are not allowed to perform their office for more than twelve years. All the major parties had to fight it. In 2009, the deadline was extended again, to 16 years.

Today, some cantonal parties shall prohibit, and then take the long time to date Again. This, however, often leads to internal squabbles. A rule that all hits, would create uniqueness. And for all the power attached, the feel is irreplaceable, there is still a good replacement: mandates in the boards of Directors.
