The failure of the 2G law is due to a lack of interest on the part of the government and its parties in properly informing the population.
The 2G legal basis is about the health of all Liechtenstein residents. That there WILL be a vote on this law was foreseeable since the judgment of the STGH at the end of May (!). There is no justification for the government only beginning to bring the individual pieces of information to the population so shortly before the vote. At this time, the MiM party had already stirred up many discoveries and spread false information among the population. The government and parties have not used the means to prevent or reverse this. The effects of a missing 2G law were probably more obvious to them than the additional costs at the state hospital. But here, too, it was not felt necessary to prevent the spread of rumours.
The VU seems to have a great interest in Manuel Frick’s failure; In addition, the FBP did not consider it necessary to actively campaign for a yes. Both parties have failed in their duty as part of democracy – whether out of laziness, cowardice or naivety. The coalition parties attack each other at every opportunity to win votes, damaging confidence in politics.
That is why we are concerned about further crises such as climate change. Here, too, there is a risk that the government will miss out on communication and measures, and that both sides will hope that their coalition partner will fail instead of standing up for what is right.
It is to be hoped that we will not end up in a situation in which Switzerland considers the 2G rule to be the most sensible pandemic measure. The fact that the population has to rely on the principle of hope in the face of threats such as Corona or the climate crisis is unacceptable. This hope is a clear sign of the promise made by those in power.
