Green light for the debate about the amendment to the law on marriage and family
The Committee of the National Assembly voted 11-2 in an amendment to the law on marriage and family relations, which changes the definition of marriage.
Will same-sex partnership be seen as equal to a marriage between a man and a woman? The debate lasted for several hours in the parliamentary committee for Labour, Family, Social Affairs and the Disabled. Members discussed the amendment of the Law on Marriage and Family Relations.
The amendment was proposed by the opposition party, United Left, which says that marriage applies to two people - regardless of gender. This would be an even bigger step towards equality than the family law, which was rejected in 2012 in a referendum.
