On July 24th, Poland’s Parliament voted to reject, without allowing a reading or debate, two bills that would have legalized civil unions in the country. Witold Pahl, member of the ruling Civic Platform party and ranking member of the parliament’s legislative committee, said both bills had (unspecified) “constitutional flaws which are not capable of being removed.”

Another Civic Platform party member hinted that partisan politics played a large role in this week’s votes and that his party would be introducing its own civil union bill–albeit more limited in scope–later this year.
