homeThe Socialist deputy Hugo Pires is the new coordinator of the parliamentary working group on housing, urban rehabilitation and city policies, replacing Helena Rosetta who resigned on Tuesday, the group's source told Lusa.
Helena Rosetta, who has until now coordinated the parliamentary working group on housing, resigned on Tuesday after polls over the new housing rules were postponed for the third time at the request of the PS.
The Socialists called for the postponement, saying that this is a very complex matter, part of which already has implications for the Government's budget proposal, and proposes that the votes be resumed in the first week of December, in time for early next year as planned.
By disagreeing with the party's position, the independent MP elected by the Socialist Party, Helena Roseta, resigned from the coordination of the parliamentary working group on Housing, Urban Rehabilitation and City Policies.
In addition to Hugo Pires will also include the working group the deputies Nuno Sá and Luís Vilhena, added to Lusa the same source.
Hugo Pires is an architect by profession, having been elected by the constituency of Braga. The deputy, 39, belongs to the committees of Economy, Innovation and Public Works, Environment, Spatial Planning, Decentralization, Local Power and Housing and also to Foreign Affairs and Portuguese Communities, as a substitute.
