Elections 2007 finally over.

With the recent elections to the federal council (with Federal Councillor Blocher having been voted out - YES!!) the 2007 election cycle is now definitely over. The Swiss Greens won big time and gained 7 seats in the National Council. Furthermore, for the first time in history, the Greens also gained two seats in the Council of States. Here's the new Green Faction in the National and States' Council.

As for the (i.e. me), I didn't quite make it into the National Council. Our list garnered a few thousand votes but way off the required quorum to make a seat. Dammit!
