National deputies of the Frente de Todos (FdT), led by Gabriela Cerruti, yesterday presented a request for exclusion in the lower house against legislator Fernando Iglesias (PRO) for his “violent attitude against women” and his “misogynistic” sayings towards the actress Florencia Peña for her visit to the Olivos residence.

“We have already presented the request for the expulsion of deputy Fernando Iglesias for the misogynistic and sexist, verbal and psychological violence that he systematically exercises against women. We no longer tolerate his mistreatment, or anyone else’s, ”Cerruti confirmed this afternoon on his Twitter account.

Along the same lines, the deputy emphasized: “We are going to use the tools that Democracy gives us and the strength that being united and empowered gives us to say #BastaIglesias! # NoNosCallamosMás # EsViolenciaPolítica ”.

He asserted that “the level of violence that (Iglesias) generates is punishable by the national Constitution and by the Pact of San José de Costa Rica. He has no right to attack anyone ”.

“We have to gather as many wills as possible for this fight. Including colleagues from the opposition bloc. We can no longer allow these macho, misogynistic speeches from the last century like those of Fernando Iglesias ”, emphasized Cerruti.

The draft resolution presented yesterday in Deputies also bears the signatures of Mónica Macha, Laura Russo, Hilda Aguirre, Mara Brawer, Ayelén Spósito, Patricia Mounier, Claudia Ormaechea, María Rosa Martínez, María Jimena López, Mabel Caparrós, Gisela Marziotta, Gabriela Estévez , Victoria Rosso and Paola Vessvessian.

Iglesias had questioned in the last hours through Twitter the visit that the actress Florencia Peña made in May of last year to the Olivos Residence, within the framework of the meetings that the President held with representatives of the artistic environment to analyze the situation of the collective of actors.

The JxC deputy referred to this fact as a “sexual scandal”, which generated rejection from different sectors, even from his own political space.

“I allow myself to say that these sexual scandals were only during the governments of Juan Domingo Perón, Carlos Menem and now Alberto Fernández. Your private life is one thing, but the presidential residence is the presidential residence, ”Iglesias had criticized.

According to article 66 of the Constitution, two-thirds of the votes will be required for a deputy or senator to be removed from office.
