The people almost vote for sure about the group initiative

Karin Keller-Sutter was safe on Wednesday in the first sentence of your speech in the national Council victory. "We are expected to vote in November of this year via the group's responsibility initiative," said the FDP Federal councillor. And you are not afraid of this vote. The Federal Council and Parliament reject the Initiative.

your statement also means: Keller-Sutter is not expected to be formulated by Parliament at the end of the counter-proposal to the Initiative is that the national Council and the Federal Council also rejects. Only for this proposal, the initiators are willing to retreat, as you are insured again on Wednesday.

Although the national Council for now the third Time for his counter-proposal. But only just. The difference between the Yes and the no-stock fraud in the summer of 2018, 48 votes, there are now only 11.

CVP to change camps

How could it come to this? The reason for large changes in the FDP and the CVP are. In the case of the FDP, only two national councils for the counter-proposal agreed to last. In the case of the CVP, there are still seven. For comparison: in June 2019, the national councils of the CVP had almost closed for the counter-proposal, voted in favour.

The changes have to do with Karin Keller-Sutter to. She had convinced in August 2019, the total Federal councillor of a second, much less far-reaching counter-proposal. Keller-Sutter's proposal was accepted in December by the Council of States. In the national Council, in turn, many of the representatives of the FDP and CVP are now in the camp of the Federal councillor.

Support was Keller-Sutter, in particular, two CVP-politicians: the Council of States Beat Rieder has tabled the proposal for you in the small chamber. National Council of Philipp Bregy has him represented as a minority proposal, in the great chamber. Rieder and Bregy work in the Brig together in the same law firm.

At the end no counter-proposal?

The discussions on the two further counter-proposals on Monday in the Council of States. The two chambers remain divided, the business in the days following once each in the National and the Council of States. Finally, in two weeks – to stay the settlement conference. You would have to present to the councils a of the two counter-proposals as a solution. One of the councils rejects, the group's initiative in the autumn without a counter-proposal before the people.

This output is expected, Hans-Ueli Vogt (SVP). He is one of the authors of the counter-proposal of the national Council. Vogt assumes that the national Council up to the end, a majority of its concept is to hold on to. However, his opponent Beat Rieder is not expected that the majority in the Council of States tilts.

Add to that: The proposal of the national Council is now worn mainly by the left parties. The have, however, announced on Wednesday that they prefer a popular vote without a counter-proposal to a " Yes " to the proposal of the Council of States.
