MTV: The draft on lowering voting age in lebanon may not pass


MTV has reported that the draft law on lowering voting age from 21 to 18 will not be passed by parliament Monday because most parties want to postpone the issue for the time being.

Change and Reform leader MP Michel Aoun questioned the timing of the parliamentary session to reduce the voting age noting that “there is a proposal to restore the citizenship which was approved by the concerned committees last April and yet the parliament did nothing about it . He wondered: “Why the rush to approve one and to defer the other “?
