Marriage equality to be on new Malta government's agenda


VALLETTA, Malta—Malta's president says the new government will quickly push for legalization of gay marriage.


President Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, the tiny EU nation's head of state, said Saturday the government's agenda includes introducing more civil rights in what had been long a socially conservative country.


Prime Minister Joseph Muscat won a second straight term in June 3 elections.


When Parliament meets on Monday, the first bill on the agenda is for "equality in marriage" to give gay couples the possibility to marry.
