Podemos proposes a cap on the rise in variable-rate mortgages for vulnerable families

In the midst of a debate on the limitation of prices in the face of the inflationary drift of the economy as a result of the war in Ukraine and after the announcement of the European Central Bank for the rise in interest rates, We can ask the PSOE to put a cap on variable-rate mortgages. Specifically, Pedro Sánchez's coalition partners propose that banks must compulsorily offer their clients the possibility of benefiting from a reduction, for one year, of the variable rate to 0.10%.

According to Podemos, this measure would translate into a reduction in the monthly mortgage payment of between 100 and 150 euros for families with economic problems, also avoiding situations of delinquency or non-payment to the banks themselves. The purple formation has transferred its initiative to the PSOE and asks that it be included in the decree law of the Contingency Plan. However, the proposal will also be registered as a Law Proposal in Congress this week.

Feijóo proposes that a family court decide if a minor can have an abortion in case there are discrepancies with her parents

The president of the PP, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, has affirmed that "it does not seem reasonable that a minor who cannot drive or vote, can have an abortion without even the knowledge of her parents." In this way the popular has defended in an interview on the Cope network the appeal that his party has raised before the Constitutional Court against the Abortion Law.

“In the event that the minor wants an abortion and the parents are against it, there are arbitration systems such as a quick sentence in a family court to specify the circumstances of the case. We do not believe that an abortion law should be made by one part of the parliamentary arch against the other. The Abortion Law seems to us to be an imposition from one party to the other and that is a mistake”, she has pointed out.

The leader of the PP has also wanted to clarify the words of Isabel Díaz Ayuso, that supported that minors under 16 and 17 years of age could abort without parental consent. “The president of the Community of Madrid has said that she understands that the parents must know the decision of the minor, but that it is not necessary that they give the knowledge of it. It is a very complex matter. Because there are the rights of the unborn child, which we must protect, and there is also the decision of the mother, who has to make an important decision for her life”, Feijóo pointed out.
