The Swiss Legislative Committee Recommends Their Country To Legalize Same-Sex Marriage

By a 12-2 vote, the Legal Affairs Committee of the National Council (the lower house of the Federal Assembly of Switzerland) approved a same-sex marriage legalization initiative introduced by the Green Liberal Party.

Following this approval, a coalition of LGBT groups said: «The Swiss LGBT umbrella associations support marriage equality and applaud the members of the Legal Affairs Committee of the National Council for their support and foresight and for assuming their responsibility to grant all Swiss the rights guaranteed to them by the Constitution.

«We are not asking for special rights; we are simply asking for equality. And we are asking for marriage equality because our relationships are as strong and our families are as worthy as those of everyone else in Switzerland.»

Switzerland legally recognizes partnerships between same-sex people since January 2007.

According to The LocalThe Local, a recent survey showed that 54% of Swiss support marriage for same-sex couples.

This initiative will now be introduced to the Legal Affairs Committees of Council of State (the upper house of the Assembly).
