Parliamentary procedural requests

Make your city a safe harbor!

The SEEBRÜCKE advocates that refugees find a place to arrive – a safe harbor. We are firmly convinced that where federal policy fails to fulfill its responsibilities, municipal politics must take action.

The SEEBRÜCKE Switzerland supports your political efforts:

  • Create a list of your demands and address them!  [VERLINKUNG FORDERUNG]
  • Choose the type of your parliamentary procedural request!

Motion: Mandates the government to take action at federal, cantonal, or communal level.

Postulate: Mandates a political body to examine whether there is a need for a law, bill, or measure regarding a specific case.

Interpellation: Requests information on important domestic or foreign political events or federal matters.

Question: Demands information about important domestic or foreign political affairs.

  • Format the request according to the requirements. The SEEBRÜCKE has an archive [VERLINKEN], in which you can find templates for the respective requests.
  • Submit your request to the appropriate political body, where it will be processed in order of urgency.
  • A debate and the vote will take place in the political body.
  • A subsequent debriefing will show you the next possible steps.
  • SEEBRÜCKE Switzerland can also support your work through petitions, protests, or media releases.

Countless cities and municipalities want to take a stand against the federal government’s policy of isolation and take in more refugees than allocated to them. The message is clear: there is still room here!

You, too, can show that a solidarity-based migration policy emanates from cities and municipalities!

If you have any questions or need support with your procedural request, contact us: schweiz@seebruecke.org
