Due to the distribution of the resident population, the 60 district seats were shifted between the three constituencies. Glarus Nord won a seat in favor of Glarus. Glarus Süd retained its seats unchanged.
The SVP won the battle for the new headquarters in Glarus Nord. And the faction was also able to grow in the south. The party is one of the winners in Glarnerland and now occupies 18 instead of 16 seats in the district administrator. The People’s Party is now the largest group in the cantonal parliament.
In doing so, they pushed back the joint parliamentary group of Mitte and GLP. With a total of three losses, she still holds 15 seats for the next legislature.
The Greens gained one seat in the north and thus hold 8 seats in the district administrator. The distribution of seats in the SP (8 seats) and the FDP (11 seats) remains unchanged. The number of women in parliament did not change at 15 either.
In contrast to most other legislatures, the Glarner district administrator has no independent legislative competence. The Canton of Glarus has the Landsgemeinde for this.
However, with 400 candidatures for the 60 seats in parliament, the district administrator lost little of its attractiveness due to the low level of competence. There were also many young people on the electoral lists.
