KUALA LUMPUR, July 24 – The proposal to lower the legal voting age from 21 to 18 years old would be brought to Cabinet and Parliament soon, said Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.

Stressing that he would fight to make it happen, the 25-year-old minister said he met Attorney-General Tommy Thomas today to discuss, among others, the necessary legislative amendments to reduce the minimum voting age to 18 years old.

Syed Saddiq, who is also the Muar Member of Parliament, said such an amendment would give youth a much important role in the nation building process.
