Australian Marriage Equality has welcomed the Prime Minister and Leader of the Opposition coming together to discuss the path to marriage equality in a meeting today.
Australian Marriage Equality Chair, Alex Greenwich said:
“We believe this is the first time leaders of both political parties have ever sat down to discuss the issue, and we hope there is continued dialogue to ensure marriage equality is achieved in this parliament”.
“The final senate numbers provide both challenges and opportunities for the issue, with many supporters of marriage equality elected, but not enough to achieve the reform without a free vote from the coalition”.
“As the various parties continue to assess their positions on the way forward, we will continue to remind them that this is a reform about people not politics”.
“We believe all political parties should work together to achieve marriage equality and it’s an issue that should rise above party politics”.
