President of the Republic Marie Louise Coleiro Preca has signed the Civil Unions Act into law.

The Act was published in today’s government gazette, three days after it was approved by parliament.

The vote on civil unions was taken on Monday, believed to have been purposely delayed after George Abela’s refusal to sign it during his term as President.

The civil unions law was approved in parliament with 37 votes in favour and 30 abstentions. No votes against were cast.
