PRI is known as one of the most conservative political parties in the country, which is why this announcement comes as a huge surprise.

Same-sex marriage is currently only legal in the capital, but the president is showing his support for legalization throughout the entire country.

Mexico would be joining Argentina, Colombia, Brazil, and Uruguay as the fifth Latin American country to legalize same-sex marriage if Peña Nieto’s proposal is approved.

“For an inclusive Mexico that recognizes in diversity one of its biggest strengths.”

The president’s decision follows that of the Supreme Court’s statements from last year, which stated that the ban on same-sex marriages is unconstitutional.
