The coalition government is negotiating the drafting of a law on a royal decree that extends the suspension of housing evictions until the end of the state of alert, after Congress ruled out changes to Podemos, ERC and Bildu in the 2021 budgets. The House rejected the proposal because it was not a budget issue. The controversy between the parties in power over the 2021 budget changes to the Public Administration presented by Podemos, ERC and Bildu, which called for the suspension of evictions and cuts in basic services in homes at risk, adds a new chapter. Before they are discussed in the Congressional Budget Committee starting November 24, House of Commons attorneys wrote in a letter indicating that the two initiatives related to evictions may not be related to the budget.
With this change, the formation led by Pablo Iglesias wanted to extend the moratorium approved in March when the health crisis caused by the coronavirus began. The measure aims to paralyze all evictions that affect people in vulnerable situations. But this blow to the initiative of the leftist parties has taken a further step, and the parties in the coalition government, PSOE and United. We can negotiate to get this suspension of the evictions by royal decree law if they are out of the emergency route. According to the terms of negotiation, the deadline for the request would be the end of the current state of alarm, that is, 9 May 2021, and not the end of 2022 as requested in the budget change.
The Secretary of Organization of the PSOE and Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda was open to extending the ban on evictions and extending the eviction until January 31, the deadline set in the royal decree.
