The green Tsunami, a citizen of the breakwater in the path: According to the SVP and the FDP, the CVP know now, the Federal Council candidacy of the Green-President Regula Rytz. The group decided today with a "very clear majority", as party leader, Gerhard Pfister confirmed to invite Rytz once a Hearing.
Pfister stressed that this was not a fundamental rejection of a green representation in the Federal Council, yet it was but a little early. "It is clear that the CVP group on 11. December no Green will choose." Thus, the bourgeois parties on the Federal Council Rytz' candidacy brakes abruptly, after it was just launched.
For the Greens, but that is no reason to give up. Group chief Balthasar Glättli acknowledges that it will now be easier. "The Federal Council elections have their own dynamics. The race is only decided at the finish line." At the end, would not decide the groups, but the 246 Parliamentarians individually. "We will try to talk with as many people as possible and convince them of our candidate." Glättli also stresses that Rytz stand still for a Hearing available, such as the CVP on their decision to return.
as A bulwark against the attack of the Green
the behavior of the CVP Glättli irritated anyway. "Hasenfüssig", he finds it even. "I wonder whether the CVP has the courage to get more influence in the Federal Council," says Zurich's national Council. With a green representation of CVP-Magistratin Viola Amherd to the majority-maker, depending on whether they voted in the government with the three red-green or the three representatives of the SVP and the FDP would.
The bulwark, have raised the Commoners against the attack of the Green in a nutshell, it does not mean for Glättli, that is the magic formula glitzere at the moment. "It is concrete." He also holds a lot of the discussions about possible adjustments to the Federal Council, the composition according to the 11. December, which will be offered by the Bourgeois in these days.
SP and GLP can Rytz not fall
For Glättli these are "distraction". The CVP has to have a self-interest in a new formula. "Otherwise, there is with the previous formula, in four years, who knows, no place for the CVP in the Federal Council." The most common interpretation of the magic formula in the past was that the four voters with the strongest parties share the seats on the Federal Council. The CVP is now fallen behind the Greens in fifth place.

the Greens can Hope to continue the SP and the green liberals. You stick to your Plan and listen to Rytz. The SP will only be located after that on the further course of action, as announced today.
GLP-chief Jürg Big exercises, however, criticism of the behaviour of CVP, SVP, and FDP. "It is customary to invite the Federal Council candidates to a Hearing," he says. Glättli it looks similar. Whether the Greens can count on the GLP, is a Large open still. He makes you squirm. The opinion-making process was not yet complete. "We understand the seat to claim the Green, but also see the arguments against the dismissal of the President of the Federal Council."
what is Clear is that Even with the support of the SP and GLP-faction will not bring the Green of their candidate through. As of today, you come together on 98 seats in the National Council and Council of States. Thus, about two dozen votes short for a choice of Regula Rytz. Where are these votes going to come from is questionable. A pair of CVP-dissenters, if there should ever give up, will not be enough. According to reports there today in our group meeting no one who came out as a Rytz supporters. The Greens can only hope that to at 11. December rises a surprising door.
And the Green should really fail, Glättli would wear it probably with be replaced by: "we will not hurt," he says. "Maybe we will benefit in future elections, even."
