SVP determines Federal Council candidates

Who will make it onto the ticket next to Rösti?

The SVP parliamentary group is meeting today in the Valais mountain village of Hérémence to decide who to propose to parliament for the Federal Council elections. A name has already been decided.


National Councilor Albert Rösti is the clear favorite for the SVP Bundesrat ticket. The question is who is allowed on it next to him:

Five want, but only one can. This is the starting position in the SVP, which has to fill the seat of the outgoing Federal Councilor Ueli Maurer (71). Four men and one woman want to inherit Maurer – and the selection committee considers all five to be suitable:

  • Albert Rösti (55, BE), National Councillor
  • Werner Salzmann (60, BE), Councilor of States
  • Hans-Ueli Vogt (52, ZH), former member of the National Council
  • Michèle Blöchliger (55, NW) Councillor
  • Heinz Tännler (62, ZG), government councillor
