Back in Australia. Tuesday, I spoke of a motion that MP Terri Butler wanted to introduce on Wednesday, know that the government has not appreciated this attempt, considering it a "pathetic political stunt" and immediately rejected by a 83-57 vote.
Yesterday, I informed you that Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott refused a referendum on equal marriage. It seems that according to the Australian laws, a referendum cannot be organized if it concerns a legislative change, it has to be a constitutional change.
Also, and this is good news, the Labor Party has decided not to wait until the year-end session to introduce its marriage equality bill in parliament. No, they will submit it next week!
It is a surprise in Australia, Prime Minister Julia Gillard could require a conscience vote on gay marriage.
Two political parties want to legalize marriage equality in South Australia.
