The European Citizens’ Initiative “Mum Dad & Kids”, which calls on the European Union to legally define “marriage”, for the purposes of EU law, as (only) the union between one man and one woman, and “family” as based on marriage and/or descent, has surpassed the national threshold in 4 Member States. According to a statement that was released today by the organizing committee, these countries are Poland, Greece, Slovakia, and Finland. This count includes not only the signatures collected online, but also those that have been collected on paper.
For the initiative to be considered successful, it is necessary to surpass that threshold in at least 7 Member States. It now seems very likely that “Mum Dad & Kids” will achieve this objective.
