Malta’s Prime Minister has pledged his first law will bring in equal marriage.
Muscat’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat has pioneered many of the country’s pioneering LGBT rights reforms, which have seen the traditionally-conservative island nation become one of the most progressive in Europe for LGBT people.
The Labour politician was sworn back in today, after winning a slightly increased majority in the country’s general election over the weekend. The leader vowed to follow through on his pledge to reform marriage laws to include same-sex couples, furthering reforms made in 2014 which opened civil unions to same-sex couples.
Mr Muscat said the equal marriage law would be the new government’s first piece of legislation, pledging progress on the issue before the summer recess.
Under Muscat’s leadership, Malta has outlawed ‘gay cure’ therapy and passed progressive reforms for transgender and intersex people.
