In the debate about the expropriation of housing corporations, more and more politicians to take a position. According to Green-chief Habeck is also the SPD-Deputy Stegner expropriation into account. CSU chief Söder thinks it's "socialist ideas".
After the beginning of a people's desire in Berlin to the expropriation of large housing corporations, the theme also provides nationwide for discussions. After the SPD had rejected the Head of Andrea Nahles expropriations, defended the Deputy party leader Ralf Stegner this now as a last "self-defense law" of the state.
expropriations were not sure the most important means to the basic right to affordable Housing, to enforce, he wrote on Twitter. "In addition to rent stop, ground the taxation of profits, more and more tenant rights, and the promotion of cooperatives, it remains but self-defense against the free-Market radicalism for the state's capacity to act!"
The SPD Deputy said that the basic law defines that the property becomes mandatory. There is not that every self-Next and the market is sacred. The editorial network Germany (RND), he added: "There are semi-criminal behaviour, in which the Plight of the tenant is taken advantage of. In these cases, the state must prove ability to act."
In the "Bild am Sonntag" had said Nahles, they understand the anger at housing corporations, "they want to squeeze every penny out of the tenants out". Instead of expropriation of the SPD, wool stop, but a Rent. "And the money available in the affordable housing, invest in more apartments."
Ralf Stegner, the issue of expropriations looks a bit different than the SPD Leader Andrea Nahles.Habeck "emergency" for expropriations
said, However, the Green-Federal's Chairman Robert Habeck is in the "Welt am Sonntag" that he does not think that the expropriation is conceivable. He suggested that the Federal government should order the Finance Minister, Olaf Scholz, immediately, to give all the land to the Federal real estate company with reasonable prices to the local community if this undertook to establish social housing.
Habeck for more use against land speculators. If these measures were not successful, "as necessary consequences of the expropriation". The basic law provides for such expropriations to the General welfare explicitly, Habeck. "It would be absurd if we apply it only to build new highways, but not to the rampant housing shortage."
