Swiss Interior Minister Alain Berset elected the country’s new president

MADRID, Dec. 7 (.) –

The Swiss Minister of the Interior, Alain Berset, has been elected this Wednesday the new president of the country after a vote in Parliament, for which he is expected to be sworn in in 2023 and thus replace Ignazio Cassis.

The vote resulted in 140 votes in favor out of a total of 181 deputies, according to information from the newspaper ‘Tages-Anzeiger’. It will be the second time that he serves as president of the country, a position that he already held between January and December 2018.

The Swiss ministers assume the Presidency for one year and on a rotating basis. In office, they lead cabinet meetings and carry out ceremonial duties. Thus, the president of the country does not act as head of state but, according to the Constitution, this power rests with the Federal Council, which performs the functions of head of state and government. In the event of a tie in the Council, it is the president who casts the decisive vote.
