M5S Senators boycott civil-unions vote

Bill set to pass in Upper House

(ANSA) - Rome, February 25 - Senators from the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) on Thursday boycotted a confidence vote in the Upper House on a maxi-amendment to a bill regulating civil unions, including same-sex ones. The bill is expected to be passed after a deal with Catholics that removed stepchild adoptions and a fidelity obligation clause.
