The PNV votes against the Housing Law and opens the door to an appeal before the TC

Date: October 1, 2023 Time: 14:19:16

The PNV has voted against the Bill for the Right to Housing in the plenary session of the Congress of Deputies despite having abstained last week in the Transport Commission. The formation has even raised the possibility that the Basque Government appeals this law before the Constitutional Court for invasion of powers.

The PNV spokesman, Aitor Esteban, who explained the change of vote in a joint press conference -reported by Efe- with the PDeCAT and Junts, has said that he has not heard any “legal reason” that contradicts this invasion of jurisdiction. He has also assured that he does not understand the “red carpet coverage” that ERC and EH Bildu have submitted to the Government for its approval and has maintained that this law “does not stop prices beyond 2024”.

During the debate in plenary session, where the PNV has withdrawn the deleted amendments that you live, the deputy Íñigo Barandiarán has complained that the law is a “paradigmatic example of recentralization”, and that it “exceeds its powers and invades the of the autonomous communities. He has also pointed out that it is not the legal “umbrella” that they expected.

Solution to stop rents

In addition, the PNV spokesman believes that the norm will not serve to provide a solution to curb the rental price either. Likewise, he has had an impact on the fact that, while his group has expressed their discrepancies from a legal perspective, from formations such as PSOE, Unidas Podemos, ERC and Bildu these have never been denied and they have not maintained legal arguments that support what they consider to give. entrance with “red carpet” to the State.

The Junts spokeswoman, Miriam Nogueras, has also expressed her rejection of the rule for invading competition and for not solving “the great housing problem.” In addition, she has also criticized that the text “does not offer legal security” and “does not guarantee decent housing.”

The abstentions save the Housing Law

On behalf of the PDeCAT, Ferran Bel has come to say that many articles of the law “do not make any sense.” In fact, he has pointed out that a bill in the Balearic Islands to regulate rental prices – knocked down in Congress with the PSOE voting against it – was “much” more respectful of powers than the Housing Law. In this context, Bel has blurted out that PSOE and Unidas Podemos, being “absolutely unsuccessful” in some communities, will be able to intervene in the housing market “through what is approved in Congress.”

Lastly, Mireia Vehí, from the CUP, has also rejected the law because it is the “PSOE’s Trojan horse” for the market to continue governing housing, because it does not correct the hoarding of property and also implies an invasion of skills. The BNG has finally decided to abstain, because although they also see invasion of powers, it considers that it includes some “advances” in terms of housing.
