The Swiss Council of States Commission for the tightening of the civil service

access to The civil service should be made more difficult. The security policy Commission of the Council of States (SiK) is in favour of this. It has approved seven of the eight measures.

The civil service was originally designed as an Alternative to military service for conscientious objectors, created, writes the SiK in a notice dated Tuesday. Today, he'll run, "optimization of life" or "for the sake of personal convenience".

According to the civil service requests have increased. The harmful but the balance between civil and military service, SiK. With the Swiss Federal Council's proposed measures a certain balance could be made.

foreign operations exclude

A measure, the Commission has rejected: you don't want to abolish the possibility of civil service missions abroad. You decided to with a 7 to 3 vote. Only very few operations, argues the SiK. The aid agencies had criticised operations, the proposed abolition of Foreign countries.

Controversial twelve-month waiting period for the change from the army in the civil service was also. The Commission with the casting vote of the President, Josef Dittli (FDP/UR).

at Least 150 civil service

With a large majority adopted the extension of the period of service for those who switch from the first repetition rate. Civil service should in future need at least 150 civil service days. Today, you need to make 1.5 Times as many days of Service as members of the army. Already done military service days will be offset, however.

not allowed in the army no remaining service days left. Thus, the Federal Council wants to prevent the members of the army to escape without the rest of the days of Service by the exchange in the civil service of the shooting duty. This, too, the Commission was good.


Next to the first use must already be in the year after admission to the civil service completely done. After that, an annual application is compulsory. Persons who have not passed at the time of admission the RS, you will need to complete your civil service application 180 days, at the latest, in the calendar year after the final approval. Today, you have until the end of the third calendar year after the admission time.

no longer allowed operations that require a started or completed a medical degree to be in the end. Doctors should should not afford more than physicians, civil service. This is to prevent someone in the civil service in his profession. For some measures, the Council of States, the existence of a minority request.

Disproportionate, and unnecessary

The total vote, the Commission at the next meeting. The template for the Revision of the civil service act, it has entered with a 9 to 2 vote. The minority is of the view that the measures were disproportionate and unnecessary.

The goal could not be achieved. Rather, the fear is that more people chose the "blue way", so medical service of the military discharged with a lid.

examination of conscience

abolished The increased interest in the civil service has to do with the abolition of the "examination of conscience" in 2009. Since then, the fact that the civil service are willing to make a one and a half Times longer service, as a Proof for a certain conflict. As a result, the number of approvals increased to 6785 in year 2017.

In the year 2018, the number declined: 6205 persons were admitted to the civil service. However, still too many, of the Federal Council. The competent Federal councillor Guy Parmelin said this at the presentation of the measures of an exception. The Trend is clear, the number again increased. In view of this trend, the Federal Council is afraid of the arms stocks. (anf/sda)
