This or that? When two parties argue, the solution is like this and to do that. This is what happened in the city council when the rent freeze for city apartments was extended. The Greens are in favor of stopping the stop because they believe that many of the residents are not so needy as to be able to cope with a moderate increase in rent. The SPD and especially its mayor Dieter Reiter are in favor of an indefinite extension for the benefit of the 69,000 parties because they see the needy among them and want to at least cap the city’s rents; They would prefer a nationwide rent freeze.
