It is not an approximation anymore, it is now a hug: To the base of the BDP and those of the CVP majority in favour of a new party in the middle. CVP-President Gerhard Pfister has been informed in accordance with “a view” on Tuesday, his Federal house group, on the first results of an internal survey, the evaluation of which is available at the end of June.

According to information of this newspaper, 83 percent of the base keep the CVP with your existing name can be selected for, and 80 percent like the new design created by “CVP. The center”, the previous Label still contains. But 60 percent can also imagine the new word creation “The middle”. This shows that the members of the traditional CVP open for a further development of your party.

“Christian” is not selectable

the Latter would be the requirement to be able to with the BDP merge. The Basis of consents to the establishment of a joint center party, with around 60 per cent – but it makes a relevant party name to the condition (we reported). For the CVP this means to your C without.

Everything is harmonious in the middle? Not quite yet. In the CVP, critical voices remain in the strongholds, who fear the party’s identity, if the C is abandoned. To appease the opponents in the Valais and Central Switzerland, wants to Pfister, the cantons in the name of the question as much as possible autonomy. Precisely how this autonomy is to be designed, now is in the fusion sessions, which take place this week between the Federal members of Parliament of both parties. Over the summer, should clarify the legal issues and in the late autumn on the merger be voted on.
