That is why the Zurich-based elections are exciting

Is the year 2019 for a woman's choice?
Well. When the three government councillors Jacqueline Fehr (SP), Silvia Steiner (CVP), and Carmen Walker Späh (FDP) re-elected and the new candidate Natalie Rickli (SVP), it also creates, in the Canton of Zurich for the second Time after 2003-07 a female majority in the seven-strong government. For a 5:2 ratio as in the Canton of Vaud, it is sufficient only if Rosmarie Quadranti (BDP) is selected. However, this is rather unlikely. Also in the cantonal Parliament, as many women could move like never before. The ratio was four years ago 34 percent. This year, the choice of 42 percent of the lists for women.

Or it is the climate of choice?
Yes, probably even more than the woman's choice. The issue dominated the election campaign since the climate strikes the young. According to a survey by the daily to the green liberals and the Green powerful. They had, however, lost the 2015 options .

ran in the Council election already?
by No means. The five candidates law can sleep peacefully. Besides the above-mentioned women Mario Fehr (SP) and Ernst Stocker (SVP). You all have shot in the last legislature, there is no major bucks. Exciting it gets to the seats 6 and 7. According to the survey, Rickli (SVP), Thomas Vogel (FDP) and Martin Neukom (Green) lie between Natalie only six percentage points. And also Jörg Mäder (GLP) could be involved. If it creates a bird that had the liberals for the first time in history less than two seats in the Zurich government.

"The time" provided the ultimate Motivation for the voters:
"In Switzerland, the Power is in the cantons," she noted.

Can change politically at all?
of Course. A change of power in the 180-member Parliament would be a Sensation, the Bourgeois are in the majority. A left-slip hard but life. Currently SVP and the FDP only need the votes of the CVP or from EDU and BDP, we have a project to get through. A strengthening of the centre-left would make the Parliament operating more exciting but also more complicated, because more coalitions would be possible and necessary. Again, to put the SVP and the FDP together have six seats, for four years, the sole to Say. The SVP has, however, lost the local elections in 2018 strong, the FDP won at least share.

Could drop the BDP from Parliament?
This is not excluded. In 2015, the BDP achieved only in the districts of Andelfingen (5.8 percent) and type (5,7) of the required Quorum of 5 percent. In the municipal elections last year, the party recorded a decreasing trend.

Who would benefit?
If the seats are free, tend to benefit the major parties. So the SVP, the SP and FDP.

Whoever wins in Zurich, wins the national. This is also true for the losers.

it Could meet the CVP, EPP or EDU?
Also you can be not completely sure. In the city of Zurich 2018 flew the CVP, quite surprisingly from the Parliament. It has also rather unexpectedly – the EPP. It should, however, go with the devil, because all three parties have strongholds. The CVP trumped in 2015 in the districts of Dietikon and Horgen with about 8 per cent, the EPP managed to make the hurdle even in five districts. Most likely, the EDU must tremble, must hope for the districts of Hinwil (2015: 6.7 per cent) and Dielsdorf (5,9). It is possible that the EPP overtaken the CVP – this happened last year in the sum of all 13 of the Zurich Parliament, municipalities (34:33 seats in favour of the EPP).

And the fifth Little one, AL?
you can sit back. In the Zurich constituency 4+5, she came four years ago to 17.8 percent. In addition, you have to put in Zurich a year ago.

What about the SP?
she was in the municipal elections, the radiant champion. The survey predicts her loss – probably a small voters hike from the SP to the Green. It is also possible that the SP-Gewurstel to the EU framework agreements unsettled one's own electorate. It is also unclear whether the Offensive of the city of Zurich SP against the football stadium effect. The FDP wants to overtake the SP. According to the survey, only 0.8 percent are missing points.

there Was controversy in the election campaign?
Yes! So many years of SP-national councillor Chantal Galladé has changed to the green liberal party, which provoked a strong criticism of SP-President Christian Levrat. And a SVP candidate was placed by a comedian the audience effectively. In addition, in the case of the CVP disgraced national councillor Kathy Riklin appeared on a CVP-list. What's wrong: The Candidates for the government took good care of each other, which is noticed especially in the case of SVP national councillor Natalie Rickli is one of the in Bern, the harder politicians. The longer the campaign lasted, the more the Bourgeois Alliance was crumbling. At the end of the SVP went off with hundreds of thousands of mailed flyers to the FDP.

there Are exciting appointments and resignations?
Several. Here, only six are mentioned: the three-party President to strive inside Nicole Barandun (CVP), Corina Gredig (GLP) and Marionna Schlatter (Green) to the Parliament. The well-known milieu lawyer Valentin Landmann (SVP) running in the same constituency as Gredig and Barandun, and by the way, Caroline Fiala (FDP), daughter-in-law by national councillor Doris Fiala (Kreis 7+8). Another striking Name: Sarah Akanji, sister of soccer star Manuel, will compete for the SP.

Good for the turnout is that good weather is announced. The Sunday power walk to the ballot box is double the Fun.

the Zurich-based result is important for the national Council elections in the fall?
Yes, clearly. First of all, a sixth of the national electorate in the Canton of Zurich, lives, second, the Zurich-election is a near-perfect barometer. Who will win in Zurich, wins the national. This is also true for the losers in the Canton of Zurich. The proof: In 87 percent of cases, since 1987, we went for a party in October in the same direction as in the Zurich spring.

There is a record-low turnout?
Hopefully not! 2015 involved in the Canton-wide, only 32.7 percent of the Voters in the election. The most frequent were the Upper and lower stammheim with 57.4 per cent. At the other end of the top was smooth with a meagre 21.1 percent. There are signs that the participation this time will be higher. In the city of Zurich had elected to on Friday, 29.1 per cent by letter. At the same time, in 2015, it was only 26.2 percent. At the time, it was at the end of 32.6 percent. In Winterthur, by contrast, were on Friday with 28.7 percent, a little less than four years ago (to 29.5). Well for the participation is that fine weather is announced. The Sunday power walk to the ballot box is double the Fun. "The time," delivered on Friday, also, the ultimate Motivation: "In Switzerland, the Power is in the cantons," she noted. (Tages-Anzeiger)
