Chilean parliamentarian to propose marriage equality law

Timothy Kincaid

August 1st, 2010

From Reuters:

The head of Chile’s Socialist party, Fulvio Rossi, told reporters on Sunday that he planned to sponsor a bill to legalize gay marriage in the country, as occurred last month in neighboring Argentina.

The bill does not have the support of the President and the Church will put up a fight. However, this step may put pressure on the legislature to pass a civil unions bill.

I read in another article that the “incoming” president DOES support marriage equality.

Was there a recent presidential election in Chile making the current, conservative, anti gay marriage president a lame duck serving out the final days/weeks of his term?

Never mind. I misread the report.

The woman who supports marriage equality is the “incoming president OF one of the Chilean political parties” rather than the “incoming President, FROM one of the Chilean political parties”.
