Cooler weather but politically hotter than usual summer

Summer’s supposed to be the time when politics is mellow and boring. Like the traffic on the normally overloaded körút, the forums in which politics are generally practiced tend to be empty during the summer. This time around, however, it was only the körút that was bereft of traffic while politics trudged on at an only slightly diminished space. From plans to tinker with the election laws, over Swiss franc-based loans all the way to debates how political accountability could be turned into criminal liability, here are four significant events that turned a low-key season into an active one.
