2,552 marriages took place in Malta last year, according Public Registry, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat said.

He was responding to a Parliamentary Question by PL Whip Byron Camilleri over the number of couples who got married in Malta and whether the couples were hetrosexual or same-sex couples.

Muscat said that since the introduction of the law of equality in marriage, the Public Registry does not hold such statistics.

In 2018 there were also four civil unions which took place in Malta, one between a hetrosexual couple and the three others between same-sex couples, he said.
