Fifth President of the Swiss Confederation from Ticino
The eighth federal councillor from Ticino will be the fifth President of the Swiss Confederation from that canton: Ignazio Cassis has been elected by Parliament as the President of the Swiss Confederation and will thus become the first among equals in the Federal Council in 2022. Cassis has more than his cantonal origins in common with the first Ticinese President of the Confederation, Giuseppe Motta, who left big shoes to fill. During his long political career, Motta served five times in the mainly representational office of President of the Confederation.
