The Government has requested the withdrawal of the reform of the Land Law from the agenda of the Plenary Session of Congress due to the lack of parliamentary support and so that the norm “is not affected by the electoral situation”, according to sources from the Ministry. of Housing and Urban Agenda.

The decision takes place two days after the Lower House overturned the PSOE law to prohibit pimping, which had the vote against PP but also government partners such as Sumar, ERC, Junts, EH Bildu and PNV. Only the socialists and the BNG voted in favor, while Podemos and Vox abstained.

On this occasion, the minority government party, Sumar, had already announced its intention to reject the Land Law, while those of Alberto Núñez Feijóo said that they would not help the PSOE when it lacked its independence allies. For this reason, and in order to avoid a second defeat in Parliament in less than 48 hours, the Government has decided to withdraw the rule, which was being processed this Thursday.

The Ministry led by Isabel Rodríguez has charged against the PP for its “lack of sense of State” and for having “prioritized its electoral interests” over a demand from city councils and autonomous communities “to favor the development of public housing.”

Furthermore, he has defended that the bill was processed “with the utmost speed to respond to the need” for the promotion and expansion of the public housing stock, in addition to serving to “guarantee the legal security of urban developments” and offer “more guarantees of environmental protection” complying with the objectives of the 2030 Agenda.

Finally, after announcing that the Land Law will not be processed this Thursday, the Minister of Housing will offer statements to the media in Congress to explain the reasons for the withdrawal of the rule.
