Mi Hazank calls for extension of eviction moratorium
The hardline Mi Hazank party on Monday called for an end to foreclosures for people who defaulted on their mortgages and an extension of the moratorium on evictions.
Noting that the moratorium on evictions would expire when the special pandemic-related legal order is lifted on May 31, Zsuzsanna Fiszter, the party’s loan and debt collection expert, told a press conference that up to 6,000 people could lose their homes from June, with an annual average of 3,000 to 4,000.
Adding the number of those who leave voluntarily to avoid deportation, that number could rise to 38,000, according to some NGOs, Fiszter said.
Mi Hazank, who crossed the parliamentary threshold and won 6 seats in parliament for the first time in the April 3 election, calls on the government to stand with the people instead of supporting the banks, Fiszter said.
Protective measures must be in place until “a comprehensive solution is found to compensate victims of fx loan fraud,” Fiszter said, referring to the plight of people who took out foreign denomination loans. before the 2008 crisis.
