As a last civil the Federal Council, the party has now also set the FDP your Position in relation to the draft for a framework agreement with the EU: In a still-secret decision by the FDP Board of Directors has decided a Yes with a big But. According to several independent sources, the agreement is for the FDP, the party leadership is only acceptable if it is the Federal Council, in follow-up negotiations to succeed, pre-citizenship of the Union to exclude it in the contract explicitly.
The Union citizens Directive regulates details on the free movement of persons. Switzerland would take this, could the EU receive foreigners after a short time in Switzerland, social assistance and remain in the country, even if they had no more work. In addition, a permanent residence permit in the EU would have to be given to citizens much earlier. EU citizens could then remain after five years, instead of, as previously, only after ten or more years, in spite of the loss of job or criminal record in the country.
the position of The European court of justice in the case of bilateral disputes is too strong.
an expression of the Board's decision, which must still be confirmed by the FDP-the Federal house group, is a motion by national councillor Hans-Peter Portmann, the demands for the opening of consultations in the foreign policy Commission of the Federal Council is, in terms of citizenship of the Union post. Port Mann is convinced that the FDP could not support the contract otherwise.
The FDP-tip but it still has other reservations. These are mainly of an institutional nature. Thus, the position of the European court of justice in the case of bilateral disputes is too strong.
The Federal Council has to the seemingly impossible success
With the decision of the FDP have notified all parties on the Federal Council of large reservations against the framework agreement. The SVP is totally against it, because they don't want any arrangements for the Adoption of new European legislation. The SP is a warranty for the accompanying measures against wage dumping, the FDP lacks the protection of the Union citizens Directive is missing, and the CVP is missing both.
Thus, the outcome of the consultation with social partners and political parties, which is now in the hot Phase is already clear. There is in any of the variants, a majority for the agreement, as it stands now as a draft. The Federal Council is commissioned to negotiate. And he must wrest both sensitive points of the EU, which was held until now to be impossible. Because there is neither a majority in favour of the framework agreement without wage protection measures for such with these, but without the exclusion of the Union citizens Directive.
