ECI Mum Dad & Kids: minimum number of declarations of support has already been attained in 7 Member States

LOGO horizontalThe European Citizens’ Initiative (ECI) “Mum Dad & Kids”, which – in order to forestall attempts at arbitrary re-definition, calls on the EU to define “marriage” as a union between a man and a woman, and “family” as based on marriage and/or descent, has passed an important milestone.

As the organisers informed today, the minimum number of signatures has by now been reached or surpassed in seven Member States: Poland, Greece, Finland, Slovakia, Croatia, Hungary, and Latvia. 

Crossing a certain threshold of signatures in at least seven Member States is one of the two criteria for an ECI to be successful. The other is to collect at least one million of signatures within one year.
