The House of Representatives standing committee for legal affairs will propose a same sex marriage bil to Parliament after it has gathered names in support of the law.

The same sex marriage bill was initiated by the Rights and Liberties Protection Department and the standing committee for legal affairs, justice and human rights of the House of Representatives. Completed three months ago, the bill is now in the public hearing process. The committee conducted a public hearing with the media and artists on Thursday.

Same sex marriage is now legal in 17 countries. Denmark is the first country to allow same sex couple to wed.
