Maurer is new President of Switzerland

Geneva-Switzerland’s Parliament on Wednesday elected the country’s hardline finance minister to serve in the largely symbolic position of President next year, and also picked two women to fill vacant ministerial spots.
The choice of Ueli Maurer, a 68-year-old member of the populist rightwing Swiss People’s Party, came as no surprise as it was his turn among the seven members of the Swiss government to take on the rotating one-year presidency. Ueli Maurer, who previously served as defence minister, served as president once before in 2013.
The Parliament picked Viola Amherd and Karin Keller-Sutter to fill two vacant ministerial spots, achieving near-gender equality in the cabinet. They join Justice Minister Simonetta Sommaruga in raising the number of women ministers to three.
