The state government made the Gender Police Unit (Unidad Policial de Género) to focus on those districts where gender violence has been issued, explained Governor Héctor Astudillo Flores.

Provided with 10 patrol cars, the unit will be positioned in Acapulco, Ayutla, Chilpancingo, Coyuca de Catalán, Iguala, José Azueta, Ometepec and Tlapa de Comonfort.

The new program is upheld by the government, the United Nations and a few different offices and non-governmental organizations, all of which have been working toward “the respect, support and aid of women,” said the governor.

A service announcing the Gender Police Unit attended by Javier Hernández Muñoz of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), who remarked that the state government is working toward ensuring comprehensive attention to the victims of gender violence.

Despite the fact that the new police unit can be seen as strengthen, Enrique Solano López said 100 officers are not enough. The representative of the association Men and Women for Equality said dividing the force amongst eight municipalities means 12 officials in each.

In a place like Acapulco, he stated, that won’t be sufficient.

Solano saw it as a primary step on a long road, noting that the country hasn’t sufficient police at either the state or municipal level.

The solitary Commission on Appointments (CA) member, Occidental Rep. Josephine Ramirez-Sato, won’t be saved from the approaching patch up nor will 10 officials holding key committee chairmanships, including Batangas Rep. Vilma Santos-Recto, according to Alvarez in his text message to reporters.

The replacements would come from the leaders’ own parties which would be nominating the replacements to the House administration, Alvarez said.

The Speaker said the revamp in the 292-seat chamber would happen after the Holy Week break.

“Yes, it will happen after the break. We are just waiting for the nominees from the respective parties,” Alvarez said.

The House is ready to adjourn Wednesday night and resume legislative work on May 2.

The 11 House leaders, including Arroyo, a Deputy Speaker, disregard the administration stand by voting against the measure.

Nine committee chairs, including Recto, Sorsogon Rep. Evelina Escudero, Dinagat Islands Rep. Kaka Sack ao, Quezon City Rep. Jose Christopher Belmonte, and Makabayan officials Emmi De Jesus, Carlos Isagani Zarate, and Antonio Tinio, also voted no.

The chamber voted 217-54, with one abstention, to pass the bill on third reading.

The House leadership was criticized for its indecision in carrying out Alvarez’s warning to strip the anti-death penalty lawmakers of their posts.

Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas initially said he requested that the Speaker permit him to deal with the matter, however after an assembly of majority members, decided to send the ball back on Alvarez’ court.
