Mexican men who don't vote face sex ban
Wednesday 20 June 2012
The ruling party's candidate in the presidential election has appealed to women supporters to withhold affection to ensure their husbands vote on 1 July.
Josefina Vazquez Mota, of the National Action Party (PAN), is well behind the frontrunner, Enrique Pena Nieto of the Institutional Revolutionary Party. But she hopes a higher turnout may boost her chances and has used Twitter to urge women to withhold "cuchi cuchi" – sex –for a month if their husbands don't vote.
Support for the conservative PAN has been hurt by a rising death toll in the government's war on drug cartels and by a failure to create enough jobs.
