“Our party was very clear and we answered very quickly, especially in Women’s Month, that we have zero tolerance for violence against women and that’s why we have asked him to resign as member of the Punta Gorda Town Council. We can’t force him, but we can do something from our part from within our party.”



“What about taking him out of the party?


Prime Minister John Briceño

“Well that’s another matter that we definitely would have to discuss, but as I said, we have zero policy when it comes to the issue of violence against women.”
