Mayor of Athens Giorgos Kaminis registered at first in Greece agreement on civil partnerships of same-sex couples – a doctor and a teacher.
It is noted that the first agreement on civil partnership was signed yesterday in the City Hall of Athens. As mayor, Caminis publicly registered a contract between the two partners, putting his signature.
“Today, the first day of application of the law, it is very important for rights in Greece and the harmonization of our country with the international reality”.
Recall that in late December 2015 the Greek parliament legalized the country’s same-sex civil partnerships. Against legalization especially actively promoted the Orthodox Church of Greece.
