Still not count all the votes, but the Numbers are clear: The people of Zurich Ruedi Noser (FDP), in addition to Daniel Jositsch (SP) in the Council of States . Noser gets in the second ballot, according to the extrapolation of between 179 000 and 188'000 votes. The Green Marionna Schlatter comes to 114'000 121'000 votes, a rather disappointing result (read the reactions in the Live-Ticker).
Schlatter had a question, the two big themes of the year on their side – the climate - and the woman. But today's result shows that this is enough. Who wants to be in the Council of States, must be known, established, and predictable. The green wave not washed this certainty 2019 in other cantons, but in Zurich.
This has a lot to do with Ruedi Noser all fulfilled the classic criteria. A Previous, as an entrepreneur, respected as a speaker close to the people, free of gross political missteps. But above all, he presented himself as a "turquoise-and-politicians" – as a blue FDPler with green admixture. With this profile, he was not to beat. Especially since he also had the support of the SVP-base that absolutely wanted to prevent Schlatter.
regionally, politically, the result for the Canton is gratifying: Jositsch and Noser know every Screw of the Bernese political machine, as the Zurich-lobbyists are heavy weights. The two of them know exactly when you need to financial Director Ernst Stocker, with what Figures to supply to the Canton the best Deal out of it. Marionna Schlatter would have had to lie down each of these points is a steep learning curve.
On the other hand, the two of them are in demand now in the climate question as a Dealmaker. The overriding theme is popping up in Parliament in the new political questions again and again. Tax system rebuild? Agriculture is climate friendly? Road Pricing introduce, or even certain transportation prohibit? As with the glacier initiative deal, the "net Zero" by 2050 calls? Especially Ruedi Noser, this Initiative sits on the Committee, it will have to prove that he is serious with the green blending into his political profile. Because the templates will come in which climate protection and the economy collide.
And then it is no longer sufficient to make any mistakes. Then it is time to take a stand.
