Last autumn, the world of SVP-group chief Thomas Aeschi (40, ZG) was still in order: The SVP-whip and had fought the AHV-tax-Deal vehemently and in the Federal house, a clear majority of his group gathered.
But in the meantime Aeschis world is out of joint. Because, in the meantime, the no were abgewatscht-tellers to the SVP-tip with the group chief Aeschi, party President Albert Rösti (51,), the chief ideologist Roger Köppel (54, ZH), entrepreneur Magdalena Martullo-Blocher (49, GR), election campaign Manager, Adrian Amstutz (65,) and the Banker Thomas Matter (53, ZH) of the party’s base.
From the no to the voting share to Yes
Had saved the national SVP-Assembly of delegates in March to the voting share, has swept the Wind in the cantons. A majority of the SVP cantonal parties has taken the Yes-Word, a GLANCE, analysis shows.
Appenzell Ausserrhoden, Basel-land, Bern, Freiburg, Geneva, Glarus, Lucerne, neuchâtel, Obwalden, Schaffhausen, Thurgau, Vaud and Zurich, 13 cantonal parties of the SVP will follow-the Minister of Finance and the Federal President Ueli Maurer (68), the weibelt at the forefront of the compromise.
Aeschis, however, was only in the Canton of Aargau, Basel-Stadt, Schwyz, St. Gallen, Valais and Zug in order, where each of the no-Parole were made. Eight cantonal sections don’t want to specify, however, and decided to go for voting release: Appenzell Innerrhoden, Graubünden, Jura, Nidwalden, Valais, Solothurn, Ticino and Uri.
Aeschi is undeterred
However, Aeschi is undeterred, and wants to continue to fight for a no. He warns about a rising burden on the middle class by means of additional OASI payroll taxes and a delay of a real-AHV-renovation. He is disturbed at the injured unit of matter, as well as social compensation measures. “After a no a new, lean corporate tax reform to be quickly re-railing”, Aeschi convinced.
The Yes-slogans of his base, he “takes note of”. Understanding he has but little to show for it. “The pressure of the economic associations is quite high,” says Aeschi. “And self-SVP-Finance Directors like to take money from the Federal government.” The Trend, he explained, also, that in the majority of cantons, the cantonal implementation exists and one does not want to endanger them.
He is afraid but in front of it that after a Yes in the future, more templates associated. “Then the EU is suddenly linked to the framework agreement, with a reduction of the Billag fees or higher children’s allowances, in order to make the submission to the people tasty. This is a great danger for our direct democracy.”
Rime: “SVP members are capable of learning”
joy is the result, in the case of SVP-national and industry President Jean-François Rime (68, FR). “Nice, I didn’t know that,” he says to VIEW. “The SVP members also are capable of learning.” The Deal was not a perfect solution, but there is no better proposal, Rime, is strongly committed to the compromise.
Aeschi, he says with a smile: “He is a diligent and Hyper-active person, who does not change his mind.”
The SVP-Trend right Rime certainly confident: “the chances are increased to a Yes. It is important, however, that the cantonal tax templates find a majority.”
