in The second ballot of the Council of States elections in the Canton of Valais on Sunday is for the CVP much to the game. After the first ballot and on the basis of forecasts, it looked like the party could lose its dominant position in the Canton. Dangerous against players advanced SP candidate Mathias Reynard.
According to the first results, it doesn't look like a choice Sensation. Based on a count of 111 municipalities (126) is the CVP-Duo Beat Rieder and Marianne Maret clearly in front of Mathias Reynard of the SP (see diagram above). Rieder and Maret, the can count, especially in the upper Valais to Support, would be chosen in the Moment as Ständeräte. However, the larger towns have not been counts in the lower Valais, in nor out. The two remaining candidates from the Green and in front of the SVP of seats are expected to be without a chance on one of the two Council of States.

Much depends on whether it Reynard manages to convince enough of the bourgeois voters from themselves. The 32-Year-old from Savièse expects a good chance. He had received in the first ballot vote from the CVP-bearing.
In the second round of Reynard may also support the free-thinking count. FDP-Doyen and Swiss Federal councillor, Pascal Couchepin, called on to support the SP-man. Your own candidate, Philippe Nantermod, has taken the party out of the race. You officially support any other candidate. For whom the FDP-voters will decide in the second ballot, remains open.
in Spite of the strong affliction of the left, the chances of the CVP intact to defend in the run-off election both of the Council of States seats. The re-election of the Previous Beat Rieder is actually safe. The second seat it, for which candidate of the bourgeois voters decide.
On the shoulders of Maret a lot of pressure. The Grossrätin from Trois torrents, however believe that after the withdrawal Nantermods many votes will be allocated from the free-thinking camp. "Those voters who do not want SP- Council of States , now have to choose for me," said the 61-year-old in a recent Interview.
