New gap between the PSOE and United We Can for the amendment of the formation led by Pablo Iglesias to the General State Budgets (PGE). Unidos Podemos has partnered with ERC and EH Bildu to ban evictions until the end of December 2022.

PSOE sources at LaSexta consider that there is disloyalty on the part of their government partner, since both parties have spoken about the amendment and the Socialists have asked that it not be presented.

From Unidos Podemos, however, they argue that there is no disloyalty and that they are “very restrained” with the issue as they see themselves facing “shameful evictions like that of last week. in Fuenlabrada of a victim of gender-based violence, her mother and their daughters “.

Consequently, they explain that they are supporting the initiative of these parliamentary groups to show that this sensitivity is more and more widespread among the majority of the investiture.

Right to housing

The initiative aims to amend Royal Decree-Law 1/2020, of March 31, with an additional provision in the finance law, to avoid extending the ban beyond the state of alarm and the wear until 2023.

The president of the United We Can parliamentary group, Jaume Asens, assured that “with the virus active, with the curfews and partial confinements of the territories, with which it falls, that while people are invited to stay at home , you can send it back. “

Asens presented the proposal at a press conference with ERC spokespersons Gabriel Rufián and EH Bildu, Mertxe Aizpurua. “ The three forces, making our mandate that comes from human rights organizations that have long worked to defend the right to housing, we present this joint amendment which aims to extend this right that we had previously won , suspending the from evictions which originate from the pandemic, to evictions in general which affect people in vulnerable situations, ”said Asens.

More specifically, the measure aims to prohibit evictions if there is no alternative to housing in the event of non-payment of rent or due to the expiration of the lease, in both cases unless the landlord is in a vulnerable situation or that the owner is a legal person or a large fork. Also if the lease is precarious, to make real rights anchored or resulting from criminal proceedings related to the use of real estate without a regulated title.

Likewise, the measure also aims to guarantee supplies until the same date, which cannot be suspended “for reasons other than security of supply”, specifies the amendment. “It is an inconsistency to ask people to wash their hands every day and that their supplies continue to be cut,” Asens insisted.
