No one other than the host has spoken before Riatsch does in this extract. It means that the host takes a very extended turn at talking before the first speaker transition despite many places where a transition could have occurred. This shows that all the participants of the debate cooperate to produce an accountable debate, where the host takes and is given the first and extended turn, and the panellists speak only when asked to by the host.

Whatever the Parliament decides, the Swiss citizens have to vote: on the initiative, on the counter-project, or on both. This happens three to four times a year, with usually several projects for the same voting day. Another important procedure is called the ‘referendum’.
