Markus Heer (SP) becomes the new government councilor of Glarus. He makes more votes than Jürg Feldmann (CVP).


Markus Heer (SP) succeeds Rolf Widmer (CVP). The 44-year-old President of the Administrative Court from Niederurnen will start as a new government councilor on May 1st. The election became necessary because Rolf Widmer is leaving his office as a member of the government at the end of April after 17 years.

In the first ballot at the beginning of March, neither of the two candidates had an absolute majority. Jürg Feldmann (CVP) received 4709 votes and missed the absolute majority by 181 votes. His competitor Markus Heer (SP) scored 4,551 votes.

Brief analysis

Open the boxClose the box

The SP succeeded in mobilizing. She was able to convert the narrow deficit from the first ballot into a considerable lead and victory in the second ballot. As in the parliamentary elections in 2019 – when the Green Mathias Zopfi was elected to the Council of States – it became clear that the left with a strong personality and persistent mobilization can also win elections in bourgeois Glarus.

The turnout was slightly higher than in the first ballot, although no national proposals attracted people to the polls.

The constituent meeting of the government council, at which the departments are allocated, will take place on Tuesday, March 30, 2021.
