The Zurich-based SP-councillor Jacqueline Fehr called for after the election defeat in the Zurich SP-sheet "P. S." for the resignation of party President Christian Levrat . Now the SP have to fear that Levrat, had announced its withdrawal for the next two years, needs to go faster than planned. And to the detriment of the party. Because the Problem in the SP is that it has a weak President, but that none, or none is there, or could make it better.
Levrat was, and is, a good SP in-chief. He has stabilised the party after years of internal crises and away from the Champagne socialism, the only left-wing intellectual speaks. For the first time, as election analysis show, the SP as a workers party and was able to grow in the traditional middle-class again.
Levrat is also a shrewd political strategist. Under him, the SP has recorded more successes, as, given the middle-class majority is to be expected that were. With the AHV Reform Levrat has defied the law of slip. And it is for him to suspect that the SP will remain with him in spite of the election loss of clock, and the political Leadership on the left will keep.
"it is impossible Levrat, that the SP will remain with him in spite of the election loss of clock."
But Levrats strength is also his weakness: He remained as party leader of the political strategist, the liberalism of the SP as a fighting organization against excessive civil economy. Inspiring leader and integration figure a – new – left movement, he became never.
And here is the real Problem: Not only Levrat, the SP is a total in your attitude a party of cool, altlinken political remained officials. The Comrades are politically highly competent – even in the new topics. The political charm, the Freshness, that comes to you, but to a large extent. The young left Milieu, sees itself as an eco - and gender-conscious awakening movement. The political style of the SP has no Chance in competition with the Greens.
"The young Nadine, mass Hardt has left as a campaign Manager, no traces."
If social democracy wants to win sovereignty over the new Left back, it is not enough, therefore, Levrat, in haste to get rid of and how to call Jacqueline Fehr suggests, simply a young woman to the SP-to-peak. You will be sobered to find that, whether man or woman – is hard to find someone who has the political skills Levrats and, in addition, language and Habitus, would have, could make out the SP is not only a well-oiled political machine, but also a political movement.
The already-mentioned Papabili include, at least, not The young Nadine, mass Hardt has left as a campaign Manager with no trace. Cédric Wermuth, long-designated successor to lost, more and more often in Marxist teaching hours. This was not enough for the Aargauer the Council of States and will also not tie up the new Left too.
Force the Enjoyed Levrats outlet, without a real Alternative, you risk to lose at the end of the strategic competence and even the traditional SP voters, the has you backed up your boss.
