New Zealand’s prime minister, John Key, has said he will support a member’s bill selected for a vote in the House of Representatives that would legalise marriages between two people of the same sex.
Labour MP Louisa Wall had submitted a member’s bill which would allow gay couples to marry and trans people to avoid divorcing their spouses before having their gender legally recognised.
Ms Wall’s bill was pulled out of a parliamentary ballot on Thursday of last week and should be voted on this year.
