German minister suggests changes to Constitution | Germany | Deutsche Welle | 22.05.2009
To coincide with the 60 year anniversary of Germany's Constitution, Justice Minister Brigitte Zypries has called for fundamental changes regarding the rights of same-sex partnerships in the country. 

In an article in the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ) Zypries has called for improvements to the laws governing the rights for people in homosexual partnerships as well as removing the "dubious" differences in the Constitution that exist between German and non-German residents.

The SPD politician wants in future for all Germans to have the same voting rights, a measure she says will lead to an increase in legal clarity and will stand as a symbol for integration.
