The Government's being asked to rethink giving the Housing Agency's top job back to Conor Skehan.
The reappointment is set to be raised at today's Dublin City Council meeting.
It was confirmed on Friday that Mr Skehan has been temporarily reappointed, for up to a year, while officials search for a replacement.
He had been expected to step down from the role at the end of 2017.
Mr Skehan has drawn criticism after a string of controversial comments about the homeless crisis.
Last week, the housing chief suggested some people could be declaring themselves homeless to 'game the system' and get moved up the social housing waiting list.
Sinn Féin Councillor Daithi Doolan outlined what will happen at tonight's local authority meeting.
He said: "We have tabled an emergency motion for tonight's meeting because we strongly believe Conor Skehan has absolutely disqualified himself because of the comments he made.
"I think this is a culture of a victim blaming."
