Federal Council Elections

Tomorrow the United Federal Assembly, consisting of the 46 Council of States members and the 200 National Council members, will vote on who will be the the seven Federal Council members for the next 4 years.

In the last years the members were from the following parties: 2 SVP/UDC, 2 FDP/PLR, 2 SP/PS, 1 CVP/PDC.
Seats are traditionally awarded after the share of votes in the National Council election, the so called Magic Formula.

After winning 17 seats in the National Council the Green party declared that they intend to grab the Federal Council seat of Ignazio Cassis FDP/PLR (Ticino). The proposed Green candidate is Regula Rytz (Bern), National Council Member and president of the Green party.

The vote is ordered by seniority of the current members: Maurer, Sommaruga, Berset, Parmelin, Cassis, Amherd, Keller-Sutter
