f4a5c-coalitiaThe impressive outcome of the popular initiative to amend the Romanian constitution in order to clarify that marriage is between one man and one woman has today officially been registered in the country’s National Assembly. This triggers a legislative procedure to amend the constitution, in the course of which the proposal will have to find the support of 2/3 of the members in both parliamentary chambers. It is anticipated that Romanian politicians will get a lot of pressure from abroad, notably from the EU institutions, to withhold their support for a clarification that enjoys very strong support within the population.
