Amherd’s power play

The Federal Council is setting a snappy pace. The government wants to sign the purchase contract for the procurement of 36 F-35 fighter jets as soon as possible. Although the offer from the US manufacturer Lockheed Martin is still valid until March 2023, the state government made its decision in principle this week.

And the bourgeois parliamentarians are standing by their guns: the Council of States will agree to a speedy conclusion of the deal in June, and the National Council will very likely follow suit in the autumn. Then the deal is fixed. SVP National Councilor Mauro Tuena (50, ZH), President of the Security Policy Commission (SIK) of the National Council, states: “With the final vote in the National Council, Parliament gave Viola Amherd the green light on the morning of September 30th, the purchase contract on the same day to sign.”
