it is necessary to Direct now an Unknown. Two weeks ago, Patrick Walder, the cantonal Parliament elections, as his party. He was elected on the fifth place on the list of Ustermer SVP . The district party lost so many votes like no other in the Canton.
Nevertheless, he should bring the party to Success, at least up to the national elections in the autumn. Until it is, as the hope of the party's Executive Board. It was a Surprise, as this yesterday the 31-year-old dübendorf Council and ortspräs identical to the SVP for Kronfavoriten for the election at the today's Assembly of delegates.
memory of Toni Brunner
The direction which wants to take the party, is clear: "The SVP needs to be louder," says Walder. With it, the sound is more aggressive. "We need to score with our more traditional issues." The difficulty was, how to these easy to understand way. "We now need to show the voters, as, for example, the framework agreement with the EU concerns." More accurate, he does not want to say, the strategic direction will now be defined in the Board of Directors.
Sure is: Walder, the candidate with Christoph Blochers blessing. The SVP-Father headed the working group has chosen to Walder for the weekend. Blocher, should also be the impetus for the return of Konrad lang, HART and the rest of the party Executive Board gave kicks. Blocher, Walder a tight national SVP-line politicize the youngster ported. This is reminiscent of Toni Brunner, 2008 Blocher 33-year-old national party President.
Walder is since 2014, the management Board of the dübendorf SVP. As his foster father predecessor Orlando Wyss, Walder, together with the national Council Toni Bortoluzzi and Elisabeth plough the main to the side.
"I quickly realized that he wants more and can."Orlando Wyss, SVP-member of the Parliament
Wyss describes Walder in the highest tones, of course. "Patrick is dutiful, enthusiastic, tireless." Weaknesses? "Because nothing comes to me spontaneously in the mind." In 2006, Walder was elected, surprisingly, in the dübendorf Council, joined the list of 20th place on the list to 9th place, and was elected. "I took him then to the Board and quickly noticed that he wants more and can," says Wyss on Walder.
Walder is a political early starter. Of 14, he co-founded the youth Council in dübendorf. The have aroused his political interest. "It was soon clear that the Young SVP is my party," he says. Politicized the high proportion of foreigners at his school got him. "This has led to conflicts."
"politicized, Sometimes borderline in sound"
Walder, in the meantime, since the age of 13 in dübendorf municipal Council, presided at the mass immigration initiative, the Zurich Committee, was the election agent of the national Council Hans-Ueli Vogt. And also at the local level, he has led major projects and has failed twice at the ballot box: with its Opposition to the innovation Park on the dübendorf airport. Walder wanted to that it remains a military airfield; and with the Initiative that councils should not be national politicians – an Initiative against the former BDP councillor Lothar Ziörjen. And against GLP-councillor and national councillor Martin Bäumle.

Today, the Trustee Walder is primarily financial policy-makers. As a spokesman for the business and audit Commission (GRPK) he has to do often with Bäumle. "In the budget debate, we cross regularly the Blades, says the dübendorf Financial officers. In the municipal Council Walder was clear on the SVP line. And as ortspräs Ident of the party, he will kick, by nature, very pointedly.
"That is expected of him as a SVP cantonal President," says Bäumle. At the same time Walder was in the Commission's work, a fair and factual opponents. It is rarely of the same opinion. "But in contrast to other members of Parliament, he can differentiate between a factual and a personal level." In this regard, Bäumle Walder, attest to a development: When he came up with 18 in the municipal Council, he was still impetuous – "sometimes the borderline in tone".
it's age, remains an issue. Of course, he was still young, he admits. However, Bortoluzzi, plow the main, and Wyss, three politicians - would be available to him with a lot of political and life experience to the page. "So we can combine my strength and energy, and your life experience."
Today, the delegates of the cantonal SVP must approve the choice of the group of four. Benjamin Fischer, President of the young SVP, hopes in a Tweet that his colleague is elected today. If, however, resistance is still an open question. The former city Councilman Derek judge says Benjamin Fischer's Tweet with the following words: "We'll see..."

The election's predecessor three years ago, was not a clear thing. In a combat-dial hard-surprisingly, against the polarizing Claudio Zanetti won the Konrad lang. This was interpreted as a rejection of the Basis of the aggressive political style of the party.
With the opposite sign is supported Patrick Walder now from the party line. His dübendorf SVP is the antithesis in some ways to its predecessor, long and hard, and the leadership style of the cantonal party. The moderate organic Farmer was the hard-line wing for a long time good to have little presence.
Now, the correction should be made. Now it should be louder. (Tages-Anzeiger)
