Slovakia Will Hold A Referendum On Equal Marriage In 2015

Written by 

Slovakia

 

 

In Slovakia, the president Andrej Kiska has decided to hold a referendum on equal marriage in early 2015.

So on February 7, voters will have to decide whether marriage should be defined as a union between a man and a woman. They will also choose to allow adoption by same-sex couples and whether sex education should be taught in school.

The referendum followed the request of a conservative group that launched a petition and collected enough signatures for the referendum that the Constitutional Court of Slovakia then cleared.

Last June, the Slovak parliament rejected an equal marriage bill.
