How long is a Zurich government councilor allowed to speak in a short debate? This question caused a scandal in the Zurich cantonal council on Monday between the non-party security director Mario Fehr (63) and the green cantonal council president Esther Guyer (71).

Guyer was of the opinion that in the short debate on the urgent declaration of an initiative on the subject of care for underage asylum seekers, the government council had a limited speaking time of two minutes – just like the cantonal council members.
