The left-green euphoria in the country – SVP is the big loser

In Buckten, Rümlingen, Häfelfingen Yes, even in Rünenberg, the place of residence of the SVP national Council Thomas de Courten – in all of the upper Basel area municipalities, the select in the normal case, so civil, as their quirky names suggest, the thing is more than clear. SP proposes SVP, woman beats man, Chairman of the County Council proposes to the national Council.

for Four years, the SP was no longer represented in the Basel government, now the party is back. And how! It is a überdeutliches result. SP candidate Kathrin Swiss not only Challenger Thomas de Courten far behind, but surpassed the two Previous Monica Gschwind (FDP) and Thomas Weber (SVP). More votes than the Swiss only make Anton Lauber of the CVP and the Green Isaac Reber, who rode his election without a single electoral poster best – and still the second best result achieved.

Other social

"in The Basel government will by my choice of various. I am pleased that the social voice is well represented again," says Swiss according to your choice. The SVP locates the reasons for their defeat in the woman question. Many who do not know the political operation so precisely, would prefer to choose a woman as a man, says the cantonal SVP-President Oscar fighters. "The Gender issue has not helped. It would have been easier if Thomas de Courten, a woman would be."

In Liestal fighter harvest for this line of reasoning, some of the head shakers. But it is also not an easy day for the SVP-President. Not only be a candidate for the councillor has no Chance, even in the case of the options in the district, it is the SVP who makes the most backwards.

From the "green wave" that broke a week ago about the Zurich cantonal Parliament elections, has become in the Basel area, a red-and-green wave. In the cantonal Parliament, the social Democrats overtake with an additional mandate, the SVP (minus 7), and voters are thus the strongest party in the Canton. The rest of the lost seats of the SVP Hiking all of the Green on 14 seats in the 90-member district.

the same image in Lucerne

Also in Lucerne, where also the cantonal total renewal elections were held, it is the Bourgeois, the need to whine, and the Eco-parties, and spend an enjoyable Sunday. And, as in the Basel area, the SVP is also in Lucerne is the big loser of the day. They lose seven seats in the cantonal Parliament and anxiety in addition to their seat of government. The previous councillor Paul Winiker must surprising speed in a second choice. The choice to create the Previous Guido Graf and Reto Wyss of the CVP with top results and also Fabian Peter of the FDP, has defended the seat of the resigned, Robert Küng.

Behind the three directly-Elected, and there are the Greens, which recorded a surprising success. Korintha Bärtsch creates it immediately to rank of five – Jörg Meyer of the SP and the non-party Former Marcel Schwerzmann. The citizens identified the location of the Lich Schwerzmann is the father of the Lucerne's low-tax policy – a bad result can also be used as a receipt for this tax policy to read, which was not appreciated everywhere. The second round of the elections in the government, on 19 November. May, who to the departure of the remaining candidates, again, is yet to be decided.

In the Lucerne cantonal Parliament, is the same image. The Greens seven seats forward, the young Greens a seat, the SP and the GLP three seats. This is all at the expense of the bourgeois parties. The CVP remains in your tribe the strongest party land, but laments the loss of four Seats. The SVP loses as mentioned seven seats, the liberals three.

In this clarity is the choice result of Liestal and Lucerne could not be expected. The Trend of the elections in Zurich confirmed not only that he has increased even more. The Green not only in the cities, you win now in the country. The SVP has lost not only in the cities, you lose everywhere. At the same time the SP remains surprisingly stable and may even increase. Green wins, the left wins.

SP hopes to signal action

Four years after the last General elections, when the country moved to the right, indicate that all of the characters to the fact that Switzerland and Swiss a correction in the sense. "We hope to have the signal effect of the three cantonal elections," said SP President Christian Levrat. Regula Rytz, President of the Greens, tweeted quite euphoric, the cantonal cumulative seat gains for their party for 2015 (plus 41). From the national SVP is listening to this Sunday.
