Cecilia Patrón’s proposal approved: offenders will not have access to elected office

April 2nd.- The plenary session of the Chamber of Congress approved this Thursday the initiative “3 out of 3 against violence” promoted by federal deputy Cecilia Patrón to prevent men who are aggressors or alimony debtors from reaching a position in public service.

“I feel extremely proud to be a Yucatecan woman, because after many struggles and battles, the state I represent was the first in the Republic to have a Law 3 of 3 against gender violence. A few months ago I made a commitment to women, girls and boys and I stated that I would not stop fighting until the Law 3 of 3 became a national reality, and fellow deputies, today this reality can be a national ideal…”.

She indicated, in the highest tribune of the country to present her justifications, that the figures on gender violence are alarming, since 70 percent of women aged 15 years or older have experienced at least one situation of violence throughout their lives; 49.7 percent of women have experienced some situation of sexual violence and 51.6 percent have experienced psychological violence.

In terms of children, according to INEGI data, out of every 10 divorces, seven parents do not comply with the child support obligation. A great advance was the creation of the National Registry of Child Support Obligations; however, it is urgent that these people who owe, comply in favor of our Mexican children, which is why they should not occupy positions, so that they first comply with their duty.

With this ruling it is achieved that people who have committed crimes against life and bodily integrity; against freedom, normal psychosexual development; for family violence; among other crimes, are prohibited from certain actions for the common good, they may not be registered as candidates for elected office, nor be a public servant.

However, the bottom line is not the sanction, it is to stop violence against women and the full development of children and adolescents. I am convinced that our country needs public servants who are worthy and committed to the people, and clearly to comply with this means that they must be good citizens. I want to clarify that this initiative is not contrary to Human Rights, since it is simply required by Law that we have public representatives who respect women and their children.

No aggressor in power,” she exclaimed, “let us celebrate this victory of and for us, women; but the most important thing is that together and together we continue building a more just, egalitarian and inclusive Mexico for all, a Mexico of rights and freedoms, a Mexico free of violence and in peace”.
