Pascal Tischhauser and Lea Hartmann

Simonetta Sommaruga (62) would have liked to have stayed longer as a member of the Federal Council. But a stroke of fate suddenly thwarted the Environment and Energy Minister’s plans for the future. After twelve years in office, the SP politician is leaving the government at the end of the year, like Finance Minister Ueli Maurer (72).
