The House plenum voted on Wednesday against President Nicos Anstasiades’ referral back to parliament of a bill to grant paternity leave and benefits to unmarried couples.

Twenty-nine MPs voted against the bill, while 15 voted in favour and one MP abstained.

The bill – tabled by main opposition Akel – had passed by majority, but Anastasiades refused to sign it and sent it back to parliament.

Following Wednesday’s vote, the bill will now go back to the president and if he again refuses to sign it, it will go to the supreme court for a final decision.
