Rome, May 27 - Centre-right politician Giancarlo
Galan said Monday that he intends to introduce a bill this week
that would recognize the civil rights of gay couples.
And, he added, he is confident that he will have support
from colleagues within ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's
centre-right People of Freedom (PdL) party.
"In the PdL, there are many who think like me...Then there
are others who do not want to expose themselves, but I have
confidence" in their support, Galan, chairman of the House
committee on culture, said in a television interview.
Galan said that he supports the rights of gay and lesbian
parents to adopt, but added that he won't include that measure
in his proposed legislation.
Sandro Bondi, a senior member of the PdL, spoke in defence
of extending basic rights to gay couples over the weekend.
"I just do not understand why Catholics have to do battle
against those who call for the recognition of unions between
homosexuals," said Bondi, who was quoted Saturday by the
newspaper Corriere della Sera.
