Romania: 2 million support constitutional amendment to protect marriage

March 01, 2016

Pro-family activists in Romania have collected more than 2 million signatures on a petition in support of a constitutional amendment that would define marriage as a union between a man and a woman.

Only 500,000 signatures are required to begin the process of a constitutional amendment. But the Coalition for Family, composed of 23 different groups, said that it was deliberately collecting a number of signatures well above that minimum, to show the strength of support for the measure. The signatures collected represent more than 10% of Romania's total population.
