Bill seeks vote for forces, 18-year-olds
January 17, 2017, 9:58 am

MP Majed Musah presented a bill on amending the Election Law in order to reduce the voting age from 21 years old to 18. He said Law Number 35/1962 on electing National Assembly members deprives a number of citizens of their suffrage right due to the current age requirement. He disclosed his proposal includes a stipulation allowing members of the Armed Forces and police officers to vote and stand for election, similar to their counterparts in the National Guard or any other citizen.
