Austria says no to same-sex marriage

The National Assembly of Austria has taken a strong stance against equal marriage on Friday.

Resolution to open marriage to homosexual couples suffers landslide defeat.

Two days before Vienna Pride, the Assembly voted against a proposed resolution to grant lesbian and gay couples ‘the human right of equal marriage’.

Out of 136 representatives, only 26 voted for and 110 against the proposal in a roll-call vote; the Green party, who proposed the resolution, was the only party to fully support marriage equality.

  1. I read somewhere why the reason this failed so big (and it is shocking) is the the Socialists are in a coalition with the Conservatives -- and they had agreed to vote no,together, to fight off a potential vote of no confidence. The Socialist party earlier agreed to endorse a call for marriage equality but had to back off at the end.
