The Communist Party of Malta welcomes the formation of a Consultative council on LGBT rights. “This is a progressive step forward”, stated the Party.
The Party notes that “the upper and lower houses in France have just approved gay marriage. This law had the support of the Communist front in both houses. Other progressive countries in Latin America, such as Argentina and Uruguay have also approved gay marriage. These South American countries are all governed by a Left wing Administration. Other EU member countries like Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and Sweden have all introduced sex-same marriage”, stated the Party.
The Communist Party of Malta appeals to the Consultative council on LGBT to follow other progressive countries and revise its policy on civil union and instead propose same-sex marriage.
