Séverine Evéquoz is giving up her seat as a member of the Vaud Grand Council, she announced today. The Lausanne Green invokes an insoluble agenda problem: she is undertaking a master’s degree in public administration at the University of Lausanne, which is given every Tuesday, the day of the plenary sessions of the Vaudois Parliament. She trains alongside her position as a scientific collaborator at the Federal Office for the Environment.

Born in 1980, Séverine Evéquoz was elected to the Grand Conseil Vaudois in 2017 and re-elected in 2022. She chaired the Grand Conseil Vaudois during the parliamentary year 2022 – 2023. She proposed herself for the Council of States, but the general assembly of the Greens preferred Raphaël Mahaim. For National, she came second in last year’s federal election.

“I will remain active in politics, first of all as a “resource person” within my party, but also as a relay between the Grand Council and the Vaudois population, and finally as president of the association to allow more women to get involved,” she wrote in her resignation letter, read by President Laurent Miéville during the resumption of the session today.

Jerome Cachin has been a journalist in the Vaud section since 2019, specializing in politics. He was responsible for the Vaud page of Freedom from 2003 to 2019. He is the author ofVaud political institutions, with Mix & Remix.More informations
