Lead candidates in October’s general election faced off over housing, attractiveness and taxes during a debate on Tuesday evening.
Participating in the debate were current prime minister and DP Spëtzenkandidat Xavier Bettel; Pirate party MP and list head Sven Clement; CSV list head Luc Frieden; ADR MP and list head Fred Keup; current health minister and LSAP Spëtzenkandidatin Paulette Lenert; current justice and culture minister and déi Gréng lead candidate Sam Tanson; and déi Lénk Luxembourg City councillor and parliamentary list head David Wagner.
The candidates addressed questions on how they would solve the housing crisis quickly; how they would keep Luxembourg an attractive and competitive location for international firms and workers, particularly in the financial sector; and questions around tax reform and lowering the amount of weekly working time.
The debate was moderated by Paperjam editor-in-chief Thierry Labro and Paperjam political journalist Marc Fassone, and took place at PWC’s headquarters in Cloche d’Or. The conversation was in French and has been dubbed into English in the video replay above.
