politicians and citizens in all political Camps would have hoped for a dismissal of the foreign Minister, a new approach in Europe dossier. Because this business will dominate the upcoming legislative session significantly. However, the Parliament of the courage to a rapid adaptation of the magic formula to the voters is missing strengths. (He is also missing in four years.)
With the decision of the CVP group, the Green party's candidate, contrary to the request of the CVP-President – not even to the Hearing to invite way is the intended political pressure to make personnel Changes in the EDA .
In Europe dossier, you can't Dodge however, the staff question any longer. An experienced Insider, a Pro-EU, says: "So, how is the EDA is today, there will be in the coming years, any successful European policy." So many people think; only veterans dare to Express it. Federal Council Ignazio Cassis had promised prior to his election, the EU issue is the Reset button. The SVP national councillor Lukas Reimann frotzelte cynical in television, thanks to this promise, Cassis has become the Federal Council. Today, all know this about-turn, as well as his communicative missteps by offhand sayings.
A double-game of the EDA
held by The EU-Commission in December 2018, to the public, the negotiated framework agreement was a "final and common outcome of the negotiations". The EDA did not contradict the. In June of 2019, double that of the EU-Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, in a letter, after the agreement had been concluded "as a package". It was only when it was for him tough, adding the Federal Council Cassis these statements. The "Switzerland at the weekend," asked the representative: "Lying to the EU or Switzerland?" The EDA had played powerful a double play. The trust is damaged in Brussels the same extent as in Switzerland.
The Swiss chief negotiator, Roberto Balzaretti, drummed in January 2019 with a country-wide Propaganda Tour, the negotiated contract was "balanced", "the Best for Switzerland", renegotiations are impossible, there is no better deal. Such he claimed, before the Federal Council had taken a position! However, today the opinion in the Federal Council against the immediate ratification in the ratio of six to one. Incredibly, as an ambitious, self-imposed success, and the lack of political sense in the cul-de-SAC can lead forced.
In questions of the free movement of persons is not supported, the EDA internally.
All experienced diplomats say that it is unthinkable to send chief negotiator Balzaretti after his anticipatory own mighty promise again to Brussels and to ask for renegotiations. As Balzaretti is "burned" – at Left and Right as well as at the EU negotiating machinery. What are the possible staff adjustments, that are up for discussion but in concrete terms, if the Parliament Cassis as the Federal Council re-elected?
A change of the Federal Council Cassis in a different Department. A carriage Balzarettis to the head of the parent Political Directorate of the FDFA (state Secretary Pascale Baeriswyl changes to the UN), and the posting of a new Chief negotiator.An assignment of the further negotiations on the all-important sticking point Dossier on the free movement of persons (including EU citizens Directive, wage protection, backup, Migration) to the FDJP, respectively, to the state Secretariat for migration (SEM), where it was cared for before Balzaretti already.
The EDA is in questions of free movement of persons not competent, and the interior is not politically supported. The EDA-diplomats do not know the labour market, they do not apply the wage protection measures FLAM yourself, you are also responsible for the Joint Committee between Switzerland and the EU for the free movement of persons agreement. This is managed by the SEM.
the solution lies in The change in
The question is whether and when the Federal Council will show as the state government, again, Leadership. Concrete proposals for targeted Amendments from Switzerland are on the table. The previous successful Secretary of state and current Professor at the ETH, Michael Ambühl had already presented in February in the scientific journal "Jus-Letter" drafted proposals for substantive institutional Changes to the framework agreement.
Recently, he has also proposed a standstill agreement between Bern and Brussels, which leads to the Courant normal for the time being, and a mutual de-escalation of mutual claims and the terms and conditions would be. The EDA has practiced, up to now, these proposals are not just in foreclosure and hedgehog mentality. This also speaks for a change.
zuwartet decide longer the Swiss government, with the Leadership, the longer you leave the EU, the issues of leadership, and Switzerland remains in the Defensive. Or it happened, what we experienced recently: Europe-Troubadours from the national Council to negotiate as a self-appointed "negotiators" without the mandate and support with EU-parliamentarians of charge on an "agreement".
Such a Jekami of self-runners is not to be used by the trust to the government. And especially not in the sense of all those that must have once represented a custom dynamic agreement with the EU in front of the Swiss people. The realistic approach starts with the personnel changes. The solidified magic formula may not serve as a justification for immobility and wrong considerations.
