Presiding member of the seven-member Swiss Federal Council having previously served as Vice President of the Swiss Confederation

The President of the Swiss Confederation, elected by the Federal Assembly for one year, is the presiding member of the seven-member Swiss Federal Council, Switzerland's executive, who chairs the meetings of the Federal Council and undertakes special representational duties.

Authority

Primus inter pares, the President has no powers over and above the other six Councillors and continues to head her/his Ministry (government department). Traditionally the duty rotates among the members in order of seniority and the previous year's Vice President becomes President.

Bilderberg

Five Swiss presidents have attended one or more Bilderberg meetings: Ueli Maurer, Johann Schneider-Ammann, Pascal Couchepin, Kurt Furgler and Hans-Peter Tschudi.
