The proposal for sex education in schools was passed.

After heated arguments, threats and insults between MPs inside the House, the House approved the proposed law.

Intervention Nikola 

The President of DIKO described the proposal for sex education in schools as blatantly unconstitutional. "The Parliament has no right to decide what the curriculum is. This initiative will hinder teaching in the end", said Mr. Papadopoulos, among other things.

"The House cannot be blackmailed in any position before its verdict, said the President of the House. It is not the first time that the President has sent letters for the interventions of the Executive power", the Speaker of the House said, among other things, in her intervention.

Intervention of ELAM MP Sotiris Ioannou

Sotiris Ioannou spoke on behalf of ELAM, who among other things said that his movement disagrees and will vote against the proposal. "Nothing is described beyond an aristology. We would accept it under conditions. If we were telling the truth. That there are two sexes, the boy and the girl, and this is distinguished by their organs. if we told them how to protect themselves from danger.

This is not what will be implemented in schools. It has been implemented in other countries and we have examples... I challenge anyone to tell us what sex education entails and why it should be compulsory. Do you want us to protect children from rapists? Let's do it, let's vote for more severe penalties... like chemical castration for all rapists."

"Hands off the children... respect for the purity and sanctity of childhood is needed...", among other things, said the ELAM MP. "It doesn't matter if they are gay or straight, only the parent can decide on the sexual education of the children...", he added.

Intervention of Andreas Themistokleous

Independent MP Andreas Themistokleous took the floor.

"I don't recognize any of them tampering with the Constitution and determining whether MPs should speak in this room. I am ashamed.. here is the temple of Democracy.

Only in North Korea and some sub-Saharan beach or some Amazonian tribe can there be a Parliament that some have decided that the MPs will not be entitled to stand on a matter under vote.

Our infamous theme.. Reading the preamble to the law reveals that whoever wrote it was guided by a sick brain. Dear colleagues, we are living a pornographic and homosexual storm. Let's start with the unconstitutionality of the law. Why is this law unconstitutional? For many and various..

First. He went to the human rights committee.. These issues are regulated by the education committee. But because colleagues love touchy subjects and they chose instead of going to the competent committee.. they had to go to the trade committee, there would be more seriousness.

Second reason. It is clear through the Constitution that what is taught today and who teaches it in public schools, it is not the job of Parliament to determine them... it is the job of the Executive," he said in quotes.

Mr. Damianou spoke on behalf of AKEL for a racist and homophobic speech from the floor of the Parliament. "Go outside, sir," answered Mr. Themistocleus.

Intervention by AKEL and Annita

AKEL's General Secretary called the independent MP Andreas Themistokleous a political quack. In a strong tone, the President of the Parliament said that she will interrupt the plenary session because there cannot be such reports in the House.

In an intense tone, the President of the Parliament mentioned again that she will interrupt the Session since MPs are interrupting each other. At this particular moment, Annita Dimitriou was addressing the MP of DIKO, Chrysantho Savvidis, who tried to interrupt Alexandra Attalidou's speech on behalf of the Environmentalists.
