[...] Also same-sex marriage families, which are part of our society, at this time don't have any protection by the government. That's why it's so important that the Partnership law is implemented and families protected."
Quote from the article: "With the adoption of the new manifesto Latvijas Attīstībai clearly defines itself as a liberal party that appreciates and values each person's freedom and equal treatment of all human interests, regardless of nationality, race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, or physical and mental abilities."
