The Federal Council is the Swiss Confederation’s executive organ, responsible for governing the country and leading the administration, as well as proposing and implementing laws. Currently presided over by Simonetta Sommaruga, it is made up of seven Federal Councilors who represent Parliament’s various political sensitivities. The Council operates on the principle of collegiality. It is a central component of Swiss federalism, which grants a large amount of sovereignty to the cantons and municipalities.
