"marriage is the permanent and legally regulated living community of a man and a woman." So, the first sentence of the CVP Initiative "For marriage and the family", refused to the people three years ago almost. Now, the discussion is likely to ripple again, after the Federal court cancelled on Wednesday the vote results. The chances are high that the Initiative will be submitted to the people once again – and with it, the exclusivity of marriage for heterosexual.
This also means: The Parliament aufgegleiste Rather in favour of Gay men and lesbians could be delayed for an indefinite period of time. Actually, a ready-prepared reform would, in the meantime, a proposal; the legal Commission of the national Council sent the bill a month ago in the public consultation process. Without the CVP Initiative would have been after the presentation by members of the Commission will be able to bring the business in the Winter, to the Parliament – with intact prospects of gay marriage in the year 2020.
"If 2020 is scheduled a new referendum, should we suspend the business until then."Beat Flat, GLP,
This schedule is difficult to adhere to, should the CVP 2020 Initiative once again in front of people. If the concern had success, would be written in the marriage as the "life community of a man and a woman" in the Constitution – and the Opening-up to gay at the legislative level impossible.
not Yet decided about the further procedure. Commission chief Pirmin Schwander (SVP, SZ) was on Thursday not reachable. Member of the Commission, Beat Flat (GLP, AG), whose group had pushed the marriage for all of 2013, with a parliamentary Initiative, but says clearly: "If 2020 is scheduled a new referendum, should we suspend the business until then."

Trouble at the Pink Cross
a Little pleased to show at Pink Cross, the umbrella organization of gay men. Managing Director Roman Heggli hopes that the delay will be as small as possible. He calls on the parliamentarians to Reform to continue to work, so that it can be implemented after the vote on the CVP Initiative quickly. "The Parliament debated for six years now. We can not once again so long to play with us." As regards the Initiative, so Heggli is confident that a second referendum would be to win. "The marriage for all has increased in the last years more and more acceptance." A Referendum would, of course, again, time-consuming and expensive. Heggli hopes, therefore, that the Parliament and the initiators to find a compromise that will allow marriage for all. For this, he would take even a slight additional delay in purchase.
Whether the Initiative will, once again, comes to the Parliament, or directly put to the vote, is unclear. The Federal Council does not comment. What is clear is that within the CVP a major interest in a compromise. The main objective of the Initiative is the elimination of the tax "marriage penalty". Also representatives of the conservative party wing would be willing to forego the Ehedefinition. "The question of whom the marriage is to be open, it must not necessarily be resolved in the tax context," says the Grisons, the Swiss Council of States Stefan Engler.
The earliest possible date for a vote would be a 9. February 2020. Spicy: Then may be tuned using the advanced anti-Racism legislation, the homosexual protects better. The CVP supports the template and would have to fight on the same day, but to ban Homosexual marriage.
