Maxime Miltgen, one of the LSAP's two lead candidates in the capital, stressed the urgent need to prioritise social policies and address the "enormous housing problem."
Speaking to our colleagues from RTL Radio on Thursday morning, Maxime Miltgen, co-lead candidate for the Luxembourg Socialist Workers' Party (LSAP) in Luxembourg City, emphasised the diversity of the party's list, highlighting the inclusion of many new faces.
However, she stressed that "the ideas we want to implement are the main thing that matters."
Acknowledging the pressing issue of housing in Luxembourg City, Miltgen underlined the urgent need to prioritise social policies and address the "enormous housing problem." Specifically, the LSAP aims to allocate €100 million annually to invest in affordable housing solutions.
Their approach involves not only constructing new housing units but also acquiring existing properties to offer them for rent at affordable rates.
Furthermore, the LSAP commits to expediting the establishment of the Empty Homes Register, a policy also desired by the government. They propose imposing taxes on landlords who leave properties vacant, thereby incentivising them to rent out their dwellings.
Regarding public safety, the LSAP opposes the prohibition of begging. Instead, they advocate for revitalising neighbourhoods and fostering a sense of community, as they believe this will contribute to a greater feeling of security.
