With 47 votes in favor and one abstention on the part of EDEK, the Parliament passed the draft law, extending until the end of the year (December 31, 2020) to protect tenants from rapid eviction procedures.

The legislation initially provided suspension of eviction proceedings until May 31, 2020, and after a relevant amendment, until September 30, 2020. But it was recently passed by Parliament and entered into force on March 27, 2020, as a temporary legislative measure to protect tenants from the possibility of their expulsion as a result of restrictive measures in the movement of citizens based on the Defining Measures to Prevent the Spread of Coronavirus COVID-19).

At the stage of the debate, MPs, without disagreeing with the proposal's aims and aspirations, expressed concern regarding the possibility that the owners of the rented premises will be negatively affected by the proposed extension of this suspension.

Responding to the MPs' reports, the president of DISY, Averof Neophytou, wondered if some people think that the state can cover the rents. Referring to DIKO, he noted that they should decide how they view the issue, pointing out that although there was an impression that the owners were wealthy and the tenants were low, today, a shopkeeper whom rents can make more than the owner.

AKEL parliamentary representative George Loukaidis said that the Parliament almost unanimously offers protection to tenants, while also unanimously acknowledging that this regulation is not the solution. He noted that liabilities and rents will run and will need to be paid accrued upon the expiration of protection.

EDEK MP Kostis Efstathiou, who abstained from the vote, indicated during the debate that the extension of the regulation will lead to the accumulation of debts in the form of rents and spoke of victimization of the owners.
