After he was sworn in by the Hereditary Prince, Adrian Hasler – who has been Prime Minister since 2013 – then swore in the members of his cabinet. “I am looking forward to the cooperation in the government and am convinced that we will work together constructively over the coming four years in the interest of our country,” Hasler said in a government statement.
The Prime Minister will also assume responsible for the Ministry for General Government Affairs and Finance, just as he did in his previous term. Two other cabinet members from the Progressive Citizens’ Party (FBP) – Auerlia Frick as the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Justice and Culture, and Mauro Pedrazzini as the Minister for Social Affairs – also served in the previous government.
The coalition partner Patriotic Union (VU) is represented in the cabinet with two new members. The new Deputy Prime Minister Daniel Risch is responsible for the Ministry for Infrastructure, Economic Affairs and Sport. Risch served previously as a member of the Executive Board of Liechtensteinsiche Post AG, where he was responsible for marketing, sales, IT and e-business. His party colleague Dominique Gantenbein will head up the Ministry for Home Affairs, Education and Environment.
