Leader of the Scottish Green Party has claimed that he believes the Scottish Parliament will vote in favour of gay marriage come next year’s parliamentary election.

The prediction made by Patrick Harvie comes after a recent poll stated that 58 per cent of the seats supported the bill for equal rights leaving only 19 per cent against the idea of same-sex couples marrying.

According to the Scotsman, Harvie said: "Civil partnership was an important step, giving same-sex couples much the same legal rights and responsibilities as everyone else. But there have always been some people who want to portray those couples as second-class citizens.



"Full legal equality for same-sex couples who want to marry and for mixed-sex couples who want civil partnership instead would be much more in keeping with this increasingly inclusive Scottish public opinion.

"I believe there are enough supporters in all political parties for it to be changed during the next Parliament."
