It is a Declaration of love of a special kind. For the West, by Swiss standards, anyway. 14. February, the new Burger Damien Cottier wrote to the Twitter universe: "Today is Valentine's day and an important day for the LGBT+ (lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender people). It is the opportunity to say what many already know: that I love and share my life for 12 years with Victor, the sun of my life. It is said."
Also Cottier know In the Romandie politicians and other public figures just keep your homosexuality like a secret. Not rare up to the end of your life. German-Swiss deal with homosexuality more openly. Why?
Also Cottier puzzled. He had to understand the difference. That was probably the French influence, where half the Nation did not know which Stars are gay, and yet only a few come out of the closet, the 43-Year-old says. He stressed, however: "I have hidden my homosexuality in recent years. My environment knew, that I live together with a man. I wanted to make it to the Public now."
Aujourd'hui c'est Saint Valentin ????et un jour important pour #LGBT+ ?????????? Débat de Commission sur #Mariage pourtous @chparlement L'occasion de dire ce que beaucoup savent: j’aime et partage ma vie depuis 12 ans avec Victor le soleil de ma vie ?????????????????????? C'est dit ???? #Lasuisse attend— Damien Cottier, candidat #EF19 (@cottier Damien) 14. February 2019
he gave on Valentine's day, his Coming out, has another reason. Cottier is preparing for the parliamentary elections of next autumn. His party, the FDP, new castle, nominated in March of their candidate. Cottier has a good chance to become for the National and the Council of States nominated. He says the voters should know for what values he vouched. The strengthening of the rights of lesbians and Gays is one of them. That the Federal Parliament decides, probably soon, the "marriage for all", evaluates it as an important step, and socio-political Opening.
Cottier can not supervisors and Supervised
But do not exclude the possibility that the Coming-out for Cottier has also a negative side. Homosexual politicians in the Romandie already experience that journalists gender pull often and as experts on the topic of Equal, but when it comes to the condition of the army, or to tax policy, you will want to forget.
In the case of Cottier, this would be unfortunate. His experience as a personal employee of Swiss Federal councillor Didier Burkhalter and the current head of humanitarian at the Swiss UN Mission in Geneva, makes him a foreign policy expert. He calls sometimes, that Switzerland had the courage, a framework agreement with the EU to conclude. His home Canton of neuchâtel export 80 percent of its production of goods abroad. In this Situation, secured bilateral relations are of existential importance, the 43-Year-old.
And in another file he wishes, in Bern, to have a say in the environmental policy. "The FDP was the fact that in the climate policy off the track." You've long ago ceded far too much Terrain to the green liberals, Cottier. Fortunately, the FDP-President Petra Gössi have now announced a u-turn.
the new Burger Should choose him to Bern, this would have to Cottier but a painful consequence. The Federal Parliament shall supervise the Federal Council and the administration. Cottier, therefore, cannot have supervisors and Supervised. As an employee of the UN Mission, he would have to cancel. But Cottier says that would be him the mandate value. (Editorial Tamedia)
