the Definition of Marriage Bill
Thursday 26th July
MANA Leader Hone Harawira congratulates Louisa Wall on her “The Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Bill” being drawn from the ballot.
Harawira said that MANA believes that strong and healthy relationships were the foundation of loving whanau and a positive and vibrant society, and recognised that those relationships could be found between all people, regardless of sex, race or class.
“Because of that” said Harawira “MANA also believes that partners in such relationships should be entitled to enter into marriage and/or adopt children, with the same legal protections, rights and responsibilities for all, regardless of sex, race or class”.
Harawira said that on behalf of MANA he would be proud to support Miss Wall’s bill at first reading and looked forward to further discussions with her about the future of her bill.
