Council of States Bishop 63. but become a father
Solothurn’s Central Counselor Piramin Bischoff once again experiences heavenly joy as a father. It is unclear whether he will compete again in the autumn of 2023, despite having children.
There is joy in the Bishop’s house! Solothurn’s Central Counselor Piramin Bischoff recently became a father again – and that too at 63 years old. He confirmed this to regional TV station Tele M1. This is the bishop’s third child.
For Thomas Esterman, a psychologist specializing in psychiatry, late parenthood has its benefits: “In the case of love, age doesn’t matter. It’s important that you build a good relationship with the child and that you take enough time,” he territorially. Explains the broadcaster. “Plus, kids keep you young in old age.”
Bishop could not be reached for comment on Thursday. It is also unclear whether the young fortune will have an effect on his further political career or whether he wants to run for the Council of State again in the autumn of 2023. The bishop has been a member of parliament for 16 years, 12 of whom are in the small chamber.
There will be more baby pictures to see in Parliament
Piramin Bischoff isn’t the only member of parliament to show photos of children to the autumn session in September. In April, FDP National Counselor Christa Markwalder became a mother for the first time. And that too at the age of 46. So the Bern natives missed the summer season. On the national holiday, the proud mother appeared for the first time with her young son Michele Luca.
This proud father is also no stranger. Peter Gruenfelder (54) is the director of the business think tank Avenir Suisse and also has political ambitions. He is running as an FDP candidate in the 2023 Zurich government elections. (dba)
