The Nationalist Party is in favour of civil unions, saying that relationships between people of the same sex should be legalised and recognised as the PN said it its electoral programme.

The PN will therefore be voting in favour of civil unions when the matter is debated in Parliament, the PN said in a statement following a meeting of the parliamentary group.

The PN said it will however present amendments that will differentiate between civil marriage and civil unions because of the differences between the two.

It said it will seek consensus on the matter in the House.
