Déi Konservativ – Joé Thein
We are going to challenge the problems, issues and the ongoing misery in various societal life subjects, by a new, dynamic, principle-based and consequent political approach in politics.

ADR – Fred Keup
Among our first priorities would be laws
- Expanding the powers of the police and the judiciary
- Allowing parents who choose so to stay at home and and be paid for raising their children themselves (introduction of the “ADR-Elteregeld”)
- Putting schools back on track by raising the level of education and embettering professional training.
- Organizing a referendum about the economic and demographic future of the country and getting a mandate from the people for the necessary reforms
- Healing the health system by more liberal approaches.
KPL – Ali Ruckert
The need to end the sanctions and embargo policy with the aim of resuming the import of energy sources by pipeline, prohibiting the import of energy sources extracted by fracking and transported by ship from overseas
Development of a program for the construction of affordable housing by state and municipal construction companies
The creation of a state investment fund in which state-owned enterprises and state holdings in private industrial and service enterprises would be pooled. Because of its large balance sheet assets, the state investment fund would be in a position – without having to resort to money from the state budget – to selectively establish new enterprises in the various economic sectors and to buy up shares in existing enterprises or entire enterprises, and to steer the economic development of the country in the sense of the social interests of the working people. This includes a systematic reduction of the financial center (Finanzplatz) and priority investments in the areas of industry, crafts, public services…
Mandatory recognition of the result of a referendum by the Chamber of Deputies and the government, electability of all state functions, including the head of state, accountability of deputies to their constituents, the creation of a single, nationwide constituency in parliamentary elections, and linking the number of parliamentary seats to population growth.
Volt – No designated lead candidate
In our opinion, political changes should always improve the quality of life of citizens. The most important changes we would anticipate would be:
- Address the housing issue. However, this issue is very complex and rarely offers short-term solutions. Change must come now so that people can benefit from it later. For example, we want social rent management to tackle the problem of the many empty and unused flats, we want to create the right to affordable housing for all, support tenants with their pensions, build more densely and significantly more social housing and tackle the property tax issue by finally addressing the necessary reforms that are decades overdue.
- Developing sustainable mobility. Here, too, there are no quick solutions, but we want to counteract endless traffic jams and mobility that is too heavily based on cars by, among other things, promoting mobility-as-a-service, creating good and cheap public transport throughout Europe (so that cross-border commuters also benefit from it), significantly strengthening cycling (by building better cycle paths, creating parking spaces, etc.) and, finally, decentralising state institutions so that traffic is finally distributed out of the capital across the entire country.
- Empowering the elderly. Here we have two major things in mind in particular: On the one hand, we want to make age-appropriate housing possible by moving away from classic old people’s homes and creating multigenerational housing estates, which at the same time provide an incentive for social housing. On the other hand, we want to let older people continue to participate in active life through lifelong learning and further training (for this purpose, we want to increase the budget of BeeSecure and their Silversurfer initiative, for example).
- Reducing working hours is one of the most promising projects to increase quality of life through more free time and needs to be thoroughly investigated. We want to carry out pilot projects on the reduction of working time in order to deduce whether such a reduction is currently economically viable and whether it actually leads to greater well-being.
- We want to further strengthen LGBTQIA+ rights (by e.g. abolishing that homosexuals are not allowed to donate blood, officially banning conversion therapy, also banning intersex newborns from having genital surgeries without medical necessity, and more) Last but not least, parental rights and women’s rights need to be further strengthened by e.g. making parental leave more flexible and including the right to abortion in the constitution.
Liberté-Freiheet – Roy Reding
Again : lower taxes on companies, on individuals, faster procedures with any demand, fewer expenses to keep our AAA by not exceeding public debt, and a referendum on Luxembourg’s neutrality.
