Czech president Miloš Zeman has said he plans to veto proposed legislation that would give same-sex couples the right to get married in the country. The measure, which was drafted by lawmakers across the Czech political spectrum, was submitted to the parliament’s lower house on Tuesday (7 June), the Associated Press reported. Lawmakers have yet to set a date to debate the proposed same-sex marriage legislation. Yet the country’s president has said he is strongly opposed to the measure and will strike it down should it even land on his desk. “I’d like to announce that if I really receive such a law to sign I will veto it,” Zeman said.
