When Pedro Sánchez and Pablo Iglesias signed a year ago, which included mechanisms to lower rentals, a high charge of United we can already warn in Petit Committee that it would have to "sweat" to enforce the PSOE. That from everything agreed between both partners, the hall was in the rent.
He was not wrong. Twelve months has lasted the negotiation until an agreement that has needed the intervention of Pedro Sánchez and Yolanda Díaz at the decisive meeting and that opens the door that autonomies can force the great holders to lower the rental prices and that the Individuals freeze them.
Between averages, a negotiation found from the first moment, despite being signed, with real moments of possible rupture and discomfort in both parties. "They choose: budgets or vulture funds," was the message that Minister Ione Belarra moved a few days ago to her team about the state of negotiation and before the socialist position not to force these funds to lower rent prices. .
The purple were determined not to support public accounts if it was not fulfilled, signed a year ago. They did not admit and commit them, they wanted it in writing in the law. "We could not let the PSOE go over us." They had already been translated with breaching the covenant for almost a year and, even, they had assumed that only the great owners would be forced and not the little ones lower the price, decaffeinating the initial purpose.
In addition, they knew that yielded meant their political credit, receiving the disapproval of social groups and that governance partners did not communicate with not addressing this regulation.
The distribution of competencies in the coalition presented a very unbalanced balance in favor of the PSOE, so how-we can know that the negotiations of you to you with socialists are an opportunity to achieve political successes and demonstrate that they can make useful policy.
In front, the PSOE trusted that the calendar and the pressure of pointing out that the demands of its partners made a social law derail to recover together we can. Hence, the Socialists even considered that the commitment to the regulation of the rent "had punctured in bone". They even played the journey of trying to disconnect the negotiation of the Law of Housing of the Budgetary. We can refuse.
A couple of weeks ago, socialists understood that there would be no public accounts for 2022 without housing law. Sánchez decided that Felix Bolaños, presidential minister and with good relationship with us, is joined to negotiation. Meetings and contacts multiplied. There were progress, approaches. But the blockage remained in the rental regulation.
This Monday, Bolaños and Belarra met because Sánchez ordered to approve budgets this week. They did not reach an agreement. Throughout the day there was negotiation, exchange of documents. Entrance The night, Bolaños transmitted to Belarra that early in the morning he would send the last proposal. He did not convince the purple either, whose anger was increasing.
When more tension was, Sánchez, before the Council of Ministers improvised a meeting attended by Díaz, Bolaños, Belarra and María Jesús Montero (Hacienda). Conclave with white smoke in less than an hour: rental regulation. "Political will lacked", they say we can.
An important moment in this negotiation was when Pedro Sánchez, during his trip to the US, met with investment funds like Blackstone. The Law of Housing was one of the treated issues and the Chief of the Executive tried to reassure these funds by showing the commitment of him with "legal certainty".
The meeting convinced UNIDA, we can not give up. In fact, he prompts something unusual: the public discomfort of Yolanda Díaz with direct message to Sánchez: "Investment funds have the goal of earning money, but the rulers what we have is to defend our people and our country."Updated Date: 05 October 2021, 20:31
