Gay Star News reports:
Ecuador has voted in favor of marriage equality in a landmark ruling today (12 June). Confirming the hopes of local activists, the country’s Constitutional Court ruled to legalize same-sex marriage in the country.
Today’s ruling centered on whether the Inter-American Court Ruling of January 2018, which recognized same-sex marriage, compels Ecuador to legalize same-sex marriage. Judges voted by five to four in favor.
The highest court in Ecuador was due to issue its ruling on 4 June, but delayed until today, with judges saying they needed more time.
Hoy Ecuador es el país número 28 en reconocer el matrimonio igualitario.
