PES president Sergei Stanishev said: “Expanding rights is expanding democracy. The European Progressives are very glad that the Maltese LGBTI people can now marry their loved ones without discrimination. We are glad that the bill was approved by an overwhelming majority of MPs and we congratulate our member party Partit Laburista and Prime Minister Muscat on their great courage and leadership”.

 

“Democracy has to consider the rights of all. Today Malta is a more democratic, more modern country. I congratulate Maltese society for their maturity. This shows that the fight for marriage equality in Europe is unstoppable”.
