Polish President strikes down same-sex marriages


According to the Polish constitution marriage is declared as a unity of a man and a woman and the country leader let people know that he is not going to change it. Andrzej Duda told Radio Poland that despite that fact that Poland is under pressure from the international organizations and European countries where equality is recognized, he would try his best to ‘protect’ Poland and its Constitution. ‘I do not think that the political majority today would agree to any amendment to the Constitution in this area, water down this clause and open interpretation that marriage could also include other genders,’ he said. ‘I unequivocally repeat: marriage in accordance with the Polish Constitution is a union between a man and a woman.’ Poland is one of seven EU states to explicitly ban same-sex marriage in its constitution. It is also one of six countries to have neither marriage equality nor offer same-sex couples civil partnerships.
