you finally have a woman in the Bundesrat. They hope in the elections to think eller-Sutter-effect?
I am delighted to have our expert representation in the Bundesrat with a woman and a man. This will help us for sure. But do not forget that our members are making in the Bundesrat in the first line policy for the whole country, and not the primary election campaign are to operate.
The FDP has been riding since the Federal elections of 2015 on a wave of success in the cantonal elections. Now you want to replace the SP when voters share the second rank. From whom do you get'svote, the SVP or the SP?
We want to not only pick up swing voters, but also Neuwähler win. The FDP, in all the cantons, in the countryside and in the cities. We all want to pick up liberal-thinking people. The SP is, however, at the Moment, only the Block and is conservative on the road. And the SVP has always been a conservative party that says no to everything. We offer liberal solutions, and show how we imagine our homeland.
so Far, the SVP with the concept of "homeland" hausierte. You want to copy the SVP?
no. It is not right that a party to leases with the term alone. Everyone needs a home. Because this is the only one who knows his roots, has the power to be that successful in the international context and for its interests, to stand up. We represent a concept of Home, the advanced and the chances of future shows.
To the important transactions of the last three years: pension reform, the CO2 failed, the law is on the rocks, with the EU, we are in the Clinch. What has achieved the strengthening of the FDP for Switzerland in this legislature?
We have achieved a lot. The pension reform we have prevented, because the pension increase would not have been in view of the demographic development financially viable. We have already outlined before the referendum is clear, as we think of the Reform. Now, Federal councillor Berset some points, but in areas such as financing through the VAT exaggerated. If it stays that way in the template, we will give in Parliament against tax. The CO2 law, we have to many Hand, about the increase of the CO2 levy or an increase in fuel compensation. It is the Left that shot down the law, together with the SVP.
The FDP has done with the SVP, the torpedoed any progress in climate protection.
We have not done with the SVP. On the contrary, we have introduced in contrast to the SVP in the whole consultation, in a constructive way. If you want to go as the Left two steps forward, although the consensus is sufficient for a step, blocked to the Left, not we. The Problem is that the Greens think their concepts to the end.
"We can discuss whether or not women have to work a year longer than today, but also the men."
what do you mean?
The Greens want to promote the electric mobility. Then you must be willing to in the domestic electricity production to expand or facilitate the trading of electricity. To do this, we need either more water, Photovoltaic and wind power plants. But this fight is the Green because of the landscape or environmental protection. Or we need to have a current agreement with the EU. But also because the greens and the SP stand on the brake. You are not even willing to discuss the requisite framework agreement with the EU. This is a dishonest policy.
Earlier, the liberals cooperated with the important shops, such as the pension reform with the CVP. Can't take any more, because the FDP is moved to the right?
The CVP has retracted in the last few years, painful losses. You can feel that the CVP is in a discovery phase. The President is looking for a civil orientation, but the group of politicised clear on the left. The CVP is clear today from us. Unfortunately, no one understands what the party stands for.
In the case of the AHV has missed the FDP their goal. The Reform of corporate taxes to make a majority, it must grant the AHV an injection of funds, without that, the retirement age is increased. DerSP-President is celebrating this as a victory.
Christian Levrat completely fails to recognize that the two billion Swiss francs per year, only 40 percent of the financing deficit to be met. Surely no one can say that the pressure for Reform was gone. If we do not reform the AHV now, the coming generations, only an insufficient pension. The pressure is still there, in spite of the AHV-control-template – and he is without reforms, a year bigger.
The FDP wanted to give the AHV only more money, if the expenditure is recognised.
I would like to make it clear that we want no cuts in pensions. But you can, for example, discuss whether not only the women have to work a year longer than today, but also the men. The people in Switzerland are reasonable, and see to the preservation of the social system, the financing must be secured.
"The SP makes delaying tactics and is waiting for the elections. You can't."
Over the age of 50 feel that they have a hard time on the labour market. Are you sure that such a retirement age increase, a majority is capable of?
I know of entrepreneurs, due to the demographic development now, no employees. Some would be grateful, if your employees would still work a little longer, rather than earlier retirement. But, I also call on companies to older workers and to keep. The policy, in turn, must ensure that systematic disincentives to be eliminated – for example, older work is no longer participating in the second pillar so expensive.
policy on Europe dominated in the election year. SVP and the SP to reject the framework agreement. How to profile the FDP?
We have made no final opinion. But if SVP and SP say no, is recessed the framework agreement. It will take years until we have something New. The EU will respond. We feel this already in the case of the exchange of equivalence. It is a game with the jobs of thousands of people in Switzerland. The next negotiation point with the EU technical barriers to trade. If we have no solution, will be able to feel, for example, the medical industry. The Federal Council must now assume its leadership role and the price of a failure to quantify.
foreign Minister, Ignazio Cassis drew red lines for the negotiations, which have now been exceeded in the matter of wage protection and Union citizenship.
Ignazio Cassis has not exceeded the red lines. It is his merit that he claims made the EU to the public and a discussion allowed. The SP has denied in the Wake of the trade unions, the discussion on how the wage protection innovative solutions can be obtained. The SP makes on delaying tactics and is waiting for the elections. That's not possible.
