“the victory of The climate Alliance,” the headline in the online edition of the German weekly newspaper “die Zeit”. “Because to be one is to say, elections in Switzerland are boring,” the newspaper said. “What came on the election today, Sunday, finally, via Switzerland, reminded me more of a freak wave.” The “green wave” lead conditions, to new power, the “might be from a German optics only knick-knack. In Switzerland, you mean a real shift of Power.”

The “Süddeutsche Zeitung” sees “climate change in Bern”: “by Swiss standards, a Tsunami hit the country on Sunday almost upon us. A green wave has captured the confederates.” With the “steep rise of the Right” be there “for the time being over”.

Berner “power cartel”

The REUTERS headline, with the “unprecedented rise of the Greens”. This should be mapped to long in the government, is Green-quotes-Boss Regula Rytz (57, BE). You hold back but with the demand for a seat in the seven-strong government. Still applies, that “these Federal councillors are looking for traditional party boundaries in the case of all the policy shops are always compromises”.

the “image” says, the Greens were “election surprise”, but: “For the formation of a government that means little. In Switzerland, a party is taken only after two elections with heavy voter increase in the government.” “Kurios” is the newspaper that there are in Switzerland two Ökoparteien. “However, Except in the area of environmental issues, both have little in common.”

Also, the “mirror” warns of too-euphorischem green Exuberance and noted that the right-wing conservative despite losses at the front. “The election result is likely to have on the government and hardly any impact,” says the magazine. “Switzerland is governed since the 60 years of the same four largest parties.” The “Kronen Zeitung” even speaks of a “power cartel” in Bern. Without civil support, the magic formula does not begin to falter.

The Greta-factor

The “FAZ” stresses that the SVP remains the most powerful force in Swiss politics. Due to the decline in Numbers of refugees and immigrants, the “foreigners would not be able to benefit from the hostile right-wing conservative” like four years ago, by the then wave of refugees in Europe. Conclusion: The Greens benefited from the climate debate, which was also in Switzerland-high waves – “in the government you can’t make it, however,” concludes the newspaper.

“ORF.at” a “Linksrückli” and then speaks of “almost a landslide victory”: the Green reset rods in Switzerland new standards, is the response from Austria. The magic formula now belong to the test.

The French “Le Monde” reports that a “historic breakthrough of the environmental parties”. The demands of the young environmental activist Greta Thunberg (16) had arrived in Switzerland “particularly strong”. The newspaper quoted Oskar Freysinger (59, VS), the outgoing councillor for the SVP, which had singled out as the only party of the “climate hysteria”: “We knew that we would have to have feathers. The essential issue before, we want to save the planet, the rescue of the Swiss sovereignty.” (kes)
