Swedes Unveil Gay Marriage Bill

22 Jan 2009

STOCKHOLM - Three of the four parties in Sweden's centre-right coalition government unveiled a Bill paving the way for legalising gay marriage.

Six of the seven parties in Sweden's parliament have now said they are in favour of gay marriage.

But the fourth member of the coalition, the Christian Democrats, refused to back the Bill, which will need the support of at least one of the opposition parties. - (Reuters)
