Mar­riage poll

Vocable (Anglais) - - À 360° -

In Ro­ma­nia, a re­fe­ren­dum on amen­ding the consti­tu­tion to de­fine mar­riage as ex­pli­cit­ly bet­ween a man and wo­man and the­re­fore ex­clude same-sex unions has been voi­ded fol­lo­wing a ve­ry low tur­nout. On­ly 20% of re­gis­te­red vo­ters went to cast their bal­lot for this re­fe­ren­dum whe­reas a 30% tur­nout was nee­ded for the re­sult to be va­lid. Al­though same-sex couples are al­rea­dy not al­lo­wed by law to mar­ry, this amend­ment to the consti­tu­tion would have made it near­ly im­pos­sible for them to win the right to mar­ry in fu­ture.
