Croatia: 65% of voters approve same-sex marriage ban
Croatia’s constitution will be amended to ban same-sex marriage after 65% of voters chose ‘yes’ at a referendum.
The electoral commission noted that from early results, 65% had voted “yes” to the question: “Do you agree that marriage is matrimony between a man and a woman?”
The result means that Croatia’s constitution will be amended to ban same-sex marriage.
More than 700,000 people signed the recent petition to change the constitution to define marriage as “the lifelong union of a woman and a man.”
Zagreb, Split, and several other large urban areas had not yet returned their results.
