Just six months before the Federal elections, one of the largest SVP-sections of open war. Franziska Roth, one of the two Aargau SVP-government Council members, effective as of immediately out of your party. The 54-year - old health and social Director is responding to the months-long criticism of their performance of duties. Already in the middle of March the five-member cantonal government had responded to the permanent crisis of Roth and an external analysis of your Department commissioned – the results are expected to be available until the summer holidays.
At a short-term einberaumten media conference, Roth was the one who to blame for your Situation, however your party. Although you admitted yourself to some deficiencies in the communication. Your party you threw, but with "continuous critique" to stock, to substantiate without the "diffuse accusations" but the. In addition, Roth, have asked the party leadership to the national Council, Thomas Lord of a castle in mid-March, "ultimately, to resign". This was "coercion," says Roth, a lawyer.
Sued Roth the SVP ?
On demand did not like Roth, to exclude, to take even legal action against the SVP leadership. "This is totally open," said Roth. How you proceed from here hanging from the further behavior of the party leadership.
Before your media appearance had been speculated that Roth could give in to the pressure and also as a member of the cantonal government to resign. However, this Option has Roth: she wants to rule as a non-Party more - at least until the next cantonal elections in October 2020.

Only 45 minutes according to Roth's statement was the reaction of the SVP with a sharpness that is unparalleled. "Franziska Roth there is a lack of will, interest and Talent, the government office, to exercise," wrote the party in a Communiqué. Also, Roth's work was "unsatisfactory". Unfortunately, they have assessed the performance of the Roth at the time, incorrectly, writes the party, and adds: "The SVP Aargau asks Aargau indoor and Aargau in the Form of an apology for this in the year 2016, adopted Nomination". Is heading the crushing SVP-Communiqué with a single word: "Hopeless".
doubt from the beginning
The crisis to Roth but neither the party nor the Canton of Aargau, out of the blue. As the SVP nominated her in July of 2016, as a newcomer to the governing Council, was Roth in the Canton of virtually unknown. Although she has headed at that time, the district court in Brugg, their political experience was limited to a few years in the municipal Parliament of the small town of Brugg.
For Roth's voice at the time, namely that she was a woman. Whether the SVP-tip believed himself really in mind that you would create a choice, is controversial. Because at the time of their Nomination, their election prospects were small; only the resignation of the popular councillor Susanne Hochuli (Green) paved Roth the way in the government.
Already at that time there was in the other bourgeois parties, the FDP and the CVP, the question as to whether Roth was up to the office. Many Liberals joined Roth in addition, with conservative views on education policy. The former FDP-President Matthias Jauslin explained Roth for many liberal-minded for barely selectable.
But before the second round of the election, the FDP was then still a choice recommendation for the Roth to prevent primary to your left against a candidate, SP-national councillor Yvonne Feri,. In the bourgeois interest had to swallow with a Roth, now holding "a toad," was the Tenor at an FDP meeting.
Today, the new President of the FDP Aargau, Lukas Pfisterer says, today, the thing was a Problem for the SVP. "The FDP has supported Roth at that time, because the SVP has proposed."
Roth help is needed
would have made your media appearance Roth no secret of the fact that she was at least overwhelmed at the beginning with the office. You would have actually needed help, she said, including in cooperation with the Grand Council, or "how to behave, what to say, or not say". However, from your party, you have felt at the time, little support. The SVP represents, in turn, Roth as resistant to advice.
Roth as a non-Party wants to govern, is unclear. You yourself says, they'll continue to do civil politics, and the count therefore remains on the voices of those Grossräte, which were part of a civil policy. However, FDP, President of the Pfisterer expressed skeptical. In the case of the Ratslinken Roth will continue to make no vote and the FDP and CVP have together first, no majority of the cantonal Parliament, and secondly is not responsible for Roth's political situation.
multi-crisis of the SVP Aargau
The spectacle of one of Roth meets a strongest bastions of the SVP. With about 38 per cent vote share in the elections in 2015, and 7 of 16 national Council seats, the SVP Aargau is significantly stronger than the cantonal sections in Zürich or Bern. But for months, the SVP AArgau is in a multiple crisis.
your first Problem is that you missed the change of generations and now in the elections in October, four of their seven Councillors at once wants to replace a difficult to impossible task.
Secondly, the party leadership has cut off at least two of their long-term national councils against their will. One of them is Maximilian Reimann, who hasn't, at 76 years old, and 32 years in office in the Federal house enough and is now on a special senior list to the departure, and thus the SVP important votes will take out.
Thirdly, it is also part of national councillor Luzi Stamm to the SVP of Aargau, which is surfaced in a mental confusion, a few weeks ago with cocaine and counterfeit money in the Federal house and now have problems with the police.
And as if that's not enough, it loses members, the SVP Aargau now one of two Government.
