The Australian Electoral Commission has postponed voting on the legalization of same-sex marriages. A spokesman for Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said that no decision has been taken. Australia has been criticized by international human rights organizations because of long time actions. In several countries for example in Canada, the United States, New Zealand and South Africa, marriage law has been changed and it accepts the same-sex relationships. Canadian Anglican Church also accepted them. The Daily Telegraph reported that voting is postponed and the deadline set for February this year. The Government provided that the decision on same-sex marriage will be made by referendum. The Daily Telegraph reported that Turnbull will reveal the date of the referendum at the meeting of the coalition parties on 13 September.
