All households must be guaranteed secure energy supplies and heating, and housing prices should be brought down, Fidesz MEP Lívia Járóka said after a meeting of the European Parliament’s women’s rights and gender equality committee (FEMM) on Tuesday. Energy poverty requires a complex solution that includes managing labour-market challenges simultaneously with local housing-related challenges, Járóka told MTI. Also, every household needs to be ensured an adequate energy supply and heating parallel to the reduction of home prices, she added. The cost-of-living crisis has hit disadvantaged groups the hardest, she said, mentioning women, the poor, including the Roma community, and forex debtors as examples. Járóka called for making use of affordable green technologies and providing a stable livelihood to all.
