Joseph Deiss steps down

Joseph Deiss steps down as a cabinet minister. There are seven of these ministers and they are the executive power of Switzerland. Personally I have just about no feelings for Deiss, neither good nor bad ones. He just isn't the colorful politician. That doesn't mean that his work is bad, actually it probably means that he has done a good job.

It will be interesting to see who will succeed Deiss. There will certainly be daily news stories about that topic. Currently people seem to talk about Doris Leuthard a lot. She is the president of Deiss' party, the Christian Democratic People's Party.
