Czech Republic To Be First Post-Communist Nation With Gay Marriage

 

PRAGUE:  The Czech government on Friday backed draft legislation that would make the country the first post-communist member of the European Union to legalise same-sex marriage.

The legislation was drawn up by a group of 46 mostly leftist and centrist members of parliament from six of the nine parties in the lower house, including the populist ANO (Yes) party of billionaire Prime Minister Andrej Babis.

Alongside its “agreement with the bill”, the government also called for “a broad social discussion” of the “sensitive subject” of same-sex marriage in a Friday statement.Source: Czech Republic To Be First Post-Communist Nation With Gay Marriage
