Ueli Maurer calls for more cooperation from the SVP

The outgoing SVP Federal Councilor Ueli Maurer has demanded more responsibility and more cooperation from his party. The party must learn that, as the strongest party, it has to be more involved, he said in an interview with the “Neue Zürcher Zeitung”.

“Not all of us have understood that yet,” he said in his last interview as Federal Councilor in the Saturday edition of the NZZ. There are topics, such as the EU question, on which the SVP must not give in. “But then there are also topics where the SVP should not necessarily strive for the maximum but together with others the optimum,” he said.

The NZZ spoke to Maurer about the fact that the party had become “more uncompromising and dogmatic” under him as party president. At the end of his political career, he now demands more pragmatism. Mauer replied that even as party president he had insisted on consensus.
