Pavol Hrušovský, head of the Christian Democrats (KDH), called on Fico on October 21 never to submit the EU Adoption Treaty to parliament for ratification. It was passed earlier this week by the EU Council, with the support of the vote of Foreign Affairs Minister Ján Kubiš. The treaty, under specific conditions, allows homosexual couples to adopt children. TASR
