“In these districts [de mayor valor] there are projects that are presented as social housing, but due to the cost of land end up being sold at prices that are not social housing, what we do with this ordinance is to be honest, this is born from a supreme decree of the Ministry of Housing that allows us to do this. What we do is block the way to real estate companies that want to do these works with prices that are not for social housing “, he emphasized.
Muñoz pointed out that he has not been summoned to any meeting with the Housing Ministry – a sector that criticized the regulation – but that he is willing to listen to other positions.
“The value of the apartment [en estos distritos] It is high for the development of the district, what we do is order something that is only benefiting real estate companies. So far I have not been asked for any meeting with the ministry [de Vivienda], but as we always do with the authorities, we open the door to dialogue, we try to take actions together. What we are looking for is that the benefit is not for a few ”, added.

Last Saturday, the Deputy Minister of Housing, Elizabeth Añaños, affirmed that this ordinance prevents the implementation of the policy of construction of low-income housing throughout the country. “We are evaluating the actions that we must take as housing (against the ordinance), because it must be clear that the national housing policy it has to be inclusive throughout the national territory ”, he said in statements to the press.
“Unfortunately, with this ordinance it is limited that the social interest housing policies are in the whole territory, for which we will ask for a meeting with the mayor (Jorge Muñoz) to talk. We know that talking can solve the issues, and perhaps also understand the reasons why they have issued that ordinance”, he pointed.
