Social Dialogue Minister Helena Dalli promised to move a civil unions bill for gay and lesbian couples by summer. The Times of Malta reports:

A Bill on civil unions for same-sex couples will be moved in Parliament before the summer recess, Social Dialogue Minister Helena Dalli said yesterday. The Bill, she said, was one of the main priorities of a new consultative council set up to address LGBT issues. The council will be chaired by Cyrus Engerer while organisations represented on the council are the Malta Gay Rights Movement (MGRM), Drachma, Drachma Parents Support Group, the students group ‘We Are’, ADITUS and LGBT Labour. She said the council was formed in the wake of a first reading in Parliament last week of a Bill to amend the Civil Code, to enable people who undergo gender re-assignment to marry a person of the opposite gender.

Yet another country moving to recognize same sex relationships.
