The SVP puts pressure on the Federal Council. A week after the party has presented their exit strategy from the Corona-crisis, to submit to you – with ten demands on the government. In the duty it takes on ironically, one of their own magistrates: the Finance Minister Ueli Maurer (69).

the SVP calls on the Federal Council reverses, at least in financial matters, a state of emergency. So far, the Federal government has put together the multibillion-dollar aid packages in-house. In order to be immediately concluded, calls for the SVP-group chief Thomas Aeschi (41). “From now on additional financial commitments should be made only by the Parliament.” Because now you don’t put from the point of view of the SVP in such an urgent state of emergency that would justify a suspension of the parliamentary processes.

the improvements at the Corona-loans

SVP-Nationalrat Alfred Heer (58) noted that it was aware that the shot from SVP-could backfire. Namely, if a majority in the Parliament is still more generous than the Federal Council and against the will of the Bourgeois – more billion, will inject. However, it is a matter of principle. “Our interest is that we install the democratic processes.”

in Addition, the SVP calls on Mason in the case of the Corona-I want to use the repair. It calls for a dividend and a bonus prohibition for Board members and senior management members of companies that have obtained a instant credit. “So we create an incentive that the loan be promptly paid back,” says SVP national Council Thomas Matter (54). In addition to looks at the assignment of the loans more closely, to avoid abuse. Mason was at the media conference last Friday that he considers the discussion of possible abuses is quite unnecessary.

criticism of guarantees

according to the SVP, is the guarantor of the Covenant of the Further in the future, only in a weakened Form for the loans. Currently, the Federal speaks guarantees the so-called Solidarity. And, although the Federal Finance delegation fleets in the course of the deep-sea debacle, the government continued to allow, in the future, the Finger of exactly this kind of guarantees. The SVP is now demanding that the Federal government should extend the Guarantee again, granted, only simple guarantees. In these, the state needs to step in only when a company actually goes broke. In the case of joint and several guarantees, however, he shall be liable before.

More claims of the SVP among other things, the increase in the self-sufficiency rate of the Swiss agriculture and the introduction of systematic frontier controls. Only persons who are “corona-free”, should be allowed to enter the country, explained SVP national councillor Céline Amaudruz (41). For the implementation of the SVP proposes to measure, for example, each of the limit temperature. (lha)
