John Key, Prime Minister of New Zealand, publicly announced his support for the bill which will allow the legalization of gay marriage.
This bill, introduced by the labour MP Louisa Wall, will be voted in the year.
Key said to RadioLive NZ: "My sight was which if two merry people want to marry then I cannot see why it would undermine my marriage with Bronagh. There will be plenty of people in our caucus who will be deeply opposed – particularly the very religious ones, and I can understand that."
He added that the law is not in the government's program but he would allow a vote of conscience: "We first need to go and have the debates, I haven’t spent a lot of time thinking about it. I’m going to give myself a little bit of room."
It would seem that the law would obtain the number of votes necessary to its passage.
