Liberté-Freiheet – Roy Reding
That is an easy one :
- Less Taxation (i.e. “Enregistrement” on housing, tax-free bonuses, Reduction of Corporate tax (ICC included) under 20 %, only 3 % VAT on construction and renovation of housing a.s.o.)
- Fewer bureaucratic rules; less State, more freedom .
- Freedom of choice : i.e. financial incentives for parents staying at home, less paperwork for any procedure, etc.
- Fewer expenses by the state : i.e. no tax-money for otherwise bankrupt Medias, no tax-money for films that are even never shown to the public, no public-relation campaigns for Ministries that are only there to promote the politician who heads the Ministry, military expenses, etc.
- Security for our inhabitants, true conservation of the nature and biodiversity instead of unsustainable “green “ projects , and mainly guarantee that Luxembourg stays a country where people like to live!
KPL – Ali Ruckert
KPL deputies would put the following resolutions to a vote as particularly urgent:
Raising the minimum wage and minimum pension by 20 percent, capping of food prices
Luxembourg’s accession to the UN treaty banning all nuclear weapons.
ADR – Fred Keup
Safety: Internal security and the fight against crime. We want everyone in this country to be able to move around freely and safely, wherever, when and however they want. We want our country to have a reputation as a small and safe country with a high quality of life. The police must be able to develop in such a way as to be able to carry out their mission effectively in all situations. ADR supports the police and stresses that the police and the judiciary must have the necessary means to make them more effective.
Housing: The exaggeratedly fast population growth is having a major impact on the housing market, among other things. Especially for young people, it has become extremely difficult to find affordable housing in Luxembourg. Those developments force many Luxembourg households to move abroad. ADR wants to address such issues by eliminating obstacles to investment, permitting more flexibility in rental agreements and granting generous aids to first buyers. ADR is opposed to punitive taxation policies, as they are planned by other parties.
Achieving a more sustainable growth: In order to be able to control the growth rate and to keep up with building the necessary infrastructure for a rapidly expanding population, ADR is ready to start discussions on the necessary reforms. These include the social security regulations and especially the pension system. We want to achieve major reforms by the next general elections scheduled in 2028.
Déi Gréng – Sam Tanson
(Sam Tanson has decided to combine her answer to questions 3 and 4)
If we want to improve the circumstances and enhance the quality of life of the inhabitants of Luxembourg our primary goal must be to create a liveable, sustainable, and just country. To achieve this goal, we need to continue pursuing a progressive policy agenda over the next five years. This requires a strong political will for bold decisions and, above all, the right prioritisation.
For my party, there are five major priorities:
- Climate Protection
The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges of our time. If we want to leave a liveable world to our children we must act now. Climate protection is consequently one of our top political priorities for the next legislative period. We have already taken the right steps over the past 10 years, with record investments in climate protection, the Climate Protection Act, and the measures of the “PNEC” (the Integrated National energy and Climate Plan). It is now essential to implement these measures consistently. As déi gréng, we will guarantee that this happens and that there will be no standstill when it comes to climate protection.
- Environmental Protection
Protecting the environment means protecting ourselves! In recent years, we have already achieved much in this domain. We have implemented comprehensive reforms in the areas of nature conservation, water protection, and biodiversity and have demonstrated that consistent environmental protection needs a strong Green Party within Government. Despite the progress we have already made, there is still much to do if we want to leave intact habitats, healthy forests, and clean waters for the next generation. The expansion of our nature reserves, the restoration of our streams and rivers and the greening of our cities and villages therefore remains one of our major priorities for the months and the next legislative term.
- Addressing the Housing Crisis
In addition to the climate and biodiversity crises, we will continue to address the housing crisis in our country. We will consistently drive forward the affordable housing construction initiative initiated by our Minister Henri Kox. It is our aim, to henceforth create at least 800 new affordable homes per year.
- Transport and Mobility
In the last 10 years, significant progress has been made when it comes to transport and in mobility in this country. Our Minister of Transport, François Bausch has managed to catch up on decades of backlog and finally brought the state our public transport to where it should have been a long time ago. Now, it is crucial to continue this hard work and implement the Mobility Plan 2035 with determination and without delays.
- Social Justice
Luxembourg needs more solidarity and social justice. We all benefit from this because social justice and equal opportunities not only strengthen our democracy but also our economy. As déi gréng, we will make the fight against poverty and inequality in our country a top priority for the coming months and years, ensuring better support for those who need it and addressing structural causes for inequalities in our country. This also includes empowering our children. Because a society that invests in its children, invests in its future.
Volt – No designated lead candidate
If we were elected to parliament with larger numbers, our first priority would be climate protection. Because this is the issue that can be pushed back the least and that has the highest priority. As climate change is a global crisis, we must act as quickly and massively as possible. In addition, we want to promote a stronger cohesion of European countries and the EU and strive to quickly address social problems, including housing, LGBTQIA+ rights, empowering women, housing for the elderly and, last but not least, voting rights for foreigners for a better democracy.
Déi Konservativ – Joé Thein
For us, the most important political issues and priorities are:
– Liberty & Democracy: We are giving back our liberal rights and freedoms to the citizens by introducing firstly, the decisive referendum and giving more democratic options to citizens in participation of our common vision of Luxembourg and its future. Secondly, establishing social justice for victims, damaged parties or broken and ruined livelihoods. Therefore, we are going to start an investigation commission in all matters of the vaccination policies and violations of citizen’s rights in the Covid-19 pandemic.
– Safety & Security: We also have strategic and efficient plan in safety & security affairs, as we have a determined will to act against the rising problem of criminality in Luxembourg. This will be put in force, as it is a principle, urgent matter.
– Sound fiscal policy & healthy national Budget: We are going to solve the government debt, by introducing a criminal offence in relation the waste of public tax money by politicians, government and bureaucrats. Contemporaneous, we are tackling the tax burden in order to guarantee social and taxpaying justice. Including a revision of our expenses household to stop politics of national debt and generational debt. Our GDP must stand for a successful economic and pioneering role.
