There are still a few days left until the electoral campaign begins in the Community of Madrid, but Pablo Iglesias is already acting as the candidate of United We Can while, at the same time, he continues to press to approve the regulation of rents before leaving the Government.

This Sunday, the still second vice president relied on the Constitution to send a message to President Pedro Sánchez: regulating the rental price, as promised by the PSOE, “is the only way to reverse a corrupt economic and political structure.”

Iglesias made it clear a few days ago, when he announced his candidacy, that his fundamental objective in the month that remains in the position of vice president will be to put the limitation of rent prices on track.

The negotiation with the Socialists has been stalled for weeks, and the Ministry of Transport of José Luis Ábalos has redoubled its commitment to not approve this mechanism by formally presenting a proposal to lower taxes on owners who lower the price of leases.

Ábalos offers to discount up to 90% of the personal income tax to owners without limiting the rent and deepens the schism with Podemos
Therefore, this Sunday Iglesias focused precisely on talking about housing in his first pre-campaign rally. The purple leader only expressly charged against the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, with whom Unidas Podemos intends to polarize throughout the campaign. But his criticisms of those who “only consider housing as a market good” also indirectly pointed to the PSOE.

“Regulating the rental market is the only way to reverse a corrupt economic and political structure, that’s why there are some who are so nervous,” denounced Iglesias, who assured that “talking about the right to housing is to go into how the oligarchies “and in ” how they are defending their privileges “against the” general interest “.

“The oligarchies consider article 47 of the Constitution,” which enshrines the right to decent housing, “a communist article,” snapped the purple leader, who assured that “those who would like housing to be only a market good You have to tell them ‘Constitution’.

Iglesias argued that limiting rent prices not only benefits tenants, but also the economy in general, and that only large homeowners lose with it. “Every euro that a family has to pay at an abusive rent is a euro that is not spent at the bar, in the bakery, that does not go to consumption, which is one of the keys in a market society,” reasoned the leader of United We Can. What’s more: as he assured, “with a rental regulation system what is achieved is that the businesses of the entrepreneurs” work.

Therefore, Iglesias was convinced that his training will be imposed on the PSOE in the struggle that exists in the Government over this issue. What is signed in the coalition pact, the vice president insisted, is “law” and “pacta sunt servanda . ”

But, in addition, Iglesias argued that the socialists will be unable to carry out a housing law in Congress that does not include this price regulation mechanism because their parliamentary partners will not allow it.

“History of corruption”
For the United We Can candidate to preside over the Community of Madrid, the management of housing policy in Spain reflects the “history of corruption”, which led large builders to finance box B of the PP. For this reason, he argued, “what is at stake in the next elections is to advance in a more democratic way” and that “housing be what the Constitution says it is.”

Along these lines, Iglesias charged against Ayuso, whom he described as “president in disobedience to justice, because he refuses to abide by the sentence that obliges him to recover for the public the 3,000 social housing units that were sold to the Azora-Goldman vulture fund. Sachs “. “That is why they are so nervous.

They know that, if we govern in the Community of Madrid, we are going to lift the carpets and it is more than likely that Mrs. Ayuso, like Cifuentes, like González, like Aguirre, will finish charged or in jail, “he settled.
