The Zurich Cantonal Council will not be reduced from 180 to 150 or even 120 members. The council decided on Monday. (archive image)

The majority of the Zurich cantonal council want to keep their office. The Council rejected the SVP’s postulate for a reduction in seats by 90 votes against and 79 in favor. Parliament will therefore continue to consist of 180 members.

With its postulate, the SVP wanted to achieve that the council “become more efficient”. She believed that fewer minds would work faster. In addition, the frustration potential of the individual council members can be reduced in this way, because they can get more involved in commissions, for example.
