Ehegesetz mit Änderung dem Präsidenten vorgelegt

Brigitte Weidlich
Windhoek (bw) – Die Nationalversammlung hat am vergangenen Dienstag eine Änderung zum Ehegesetz (Marriage Act) im zweiten Anlauf verabschiedet.

Der Nationalrat hatte eine Änderung der Formulierung empfohlen und das Gesetz an die Nationalversammlung verwiesen.

Die von dem ehemaligen Minister Jerry Ekandjo, vor einigen Monaten, vorgeschlagene umstrittene Gesetzesänderung hatte eine heftige Debatte über die Akzeptanz und/oder Ablehnung von gleichgeschlechtlichen Ehepartnern, sprich Schwulen und Lesben, verursacht. Dem voran gegangen war ein Urteil des Obersten Gerichtshofs, dass das namibische Innenministerium ausländischen LGBTQ-Ehepartnern von Namibiern ebenfalls Aufenthaltsgenehmigungen auszustellen habe.

Ekandjos Antrag definierte den Begriff „Ehe“ als eine Vereinigung von Personen männlichen und weiblichen Geschlechts. Der Nationalrat hat nach längerer Beratung die Formulierung „ein genetisch als Mann und eine genetisch als Frau geborene Person“ als Empfehlung für die Definition vorgeschlagen.

Das Gesetz wird nun Präsident Hage Geingob zur Unterschrift vorgelegt.
