Recently, Federal Councilor Viola Amherd (59) found herself in a wasp nest: Against the background of the Ukraine war, she had called on the committee against the procurement of 36 F-35 fighter jets to stop collecting signatures.

In the spring session, she also made it clear: If the initiative is not submitted by the end of March, there is “zero chance of voting on it before 2024”. However, the purchase offers from the USA are only valid until the end of March 2023. A delay would lead to higher costs, she warned. March is over – and the initiative has still not been submitted.
