Eugenio Cedeño of the ruling Partido Revolucionario Moderno (PRM) has sparked controversy with his statements about sex in marriage. He believes that a husband should be able to have sex with his wife without her consent, even if she does not want to have children. Cedeño argued in an interview on Primera Hora TV program that this is not a criminal act because the couple has already established sexual consent through their marriage contract.

"We inform Mr. Eugenio Cedeño that this national leadership has requested the National Prosecutor and the Ethics and Control Commission to initiate the corresponding disciplinary procedure for his statements, which have highly negative connotations for women's rights and encourage gender violence. This is unacceptable for the PRM," the letter states.

Since the founding of the PRM, respect for women, equality and the absolute rejection of any type of gender violence have been defended as fundamental principles.

The deputy was reminded that section m) of article 63 of the PRM statutes considers it a serious offense to make public statements that are not in accordance with the doctrine and lines of the party. In addition, the PRM is the only political party whose statutes classify violence against women as a very serious offense, as detailed in section b) of article 64.

Finally, they regretted Cedeño's statements and invited him to reflect on the content and form of them. "Respect for our colleagues and women in general is one of the pillars of the political vision we promote," the letter concludes.
