Romanian PM Viorica Dancila was among the MEPs who voted, in 2015, in favor of a report that encouraged EU member states to move towards the recognition of same-sex marriages.

Earlier today, Dancila voted “Yes” in the referendum to change the Constitution in order to redefine the family as being based on the marriage between a man and a woman, which would effectively make the future legalization of same-sex marriage very difficult in Romania.

The 2015 report was written by Italian MEP Pier Antonio Panzeri and encouraged institutions and member states to continue to reflect on recognizing same-sex marriages. 390 of the 638 MEPs present voted in favor of the report, according to Adevarul.

A total of 22 Romanian MEPs gave a favorable vote to the report: Victor Bostinaru (PSD, S&D), Cristian Busoi (PNL, PPE), Andi Cristea (PSD, S&D), Mircea Diaconu (independent, ALDE), Damian Draghici (UNPR, S&D), Vasilica Dancila (PSD, S&D), Doru Frunzulica (UNPR, S&D), Maria Grapini (PC, S&D), Catalin Ivan (PSD, S&D), Monica Macovei (independent, PPE), Siegfried Muresan (PMP, PPE), Ramona Manescu (PNL, PPE), Dan Nica (PSD, S&D), Norica Nicolai (PNL, ALDE), Cristian Preda (independent, PPE), Ioan-Mircea Pascu (PSD, S&D), Laurenţiu Rebega (PC, S&D), Theodor Stolojan (PNL, PPE), Daciana Sarbu (PSD, S&D), Claudia Tapardel (PSD, S&D), Ciprian Tanasescu (PSD, S&D), Adina Valean (PNL, PPE).
