Daniel Jositsch has Colombian citizenship but did not state this on the parliament’s website.

A number of politicians have already stumbled over dual citizenship. As the last about the SVP Federal Council candidate Michèle Blöchliger (55). Contrary to her initial statement, she was a dual citizen – and immediately took herself out of the Bundesrat race when she had to correct her own statement.

In itself, it is not a legal problem at all to have several passports and thus to sit in the Swiss Parliament. Politically, however, the topic is again up for discussion. SVP party president Marco Chiesa (48) demanded with a parliamentary initiative that federal councilors should not have a second citizenship. The initiative failed.
