David Zuberbühler (SVP) has been the National Councilor of the Canton of Appenzell Ausserrhoden for eight years. The 44-year-old is running for re-election – and is being challenged by the center and the FDP. The center wants to join the National Council with its cantonal president and cantonal councilor Claudia Frischknecht. The FDP wants to get the only Ausserrhoden National Council seat with the entrepreneur Matthias Tischhauser.
The SVP man and entrepreneur Zuberbühler is not without controversy as an Ausserrhoden National Councilor. But: The center and the FDP could dispute each other’s votes with competing candidacies, which could help the SVP.
