Same-sex marriage will likely be delayed for at least three years in Australia after the opposition Labor Party said Tuesday it would not support a national vote, dealing another potential blow to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.Australia's center-right coalition government introduced legislation to parliament last month to hold a public vote in February 2017, on whether to legalize same-sex unions.Turnbull has said that, should the legislation proposing a national vote be rejected, the issue of same-sex marriage would not be reintroduced into parliament until after the next election, which is due in or before November 2019 .
