KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The voting age, or eligibility to vote in Malaysia, should be lowered to 18 years compared to 21 years now, said Youth and Sports Minister Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman.

"My target is it can be done ahead of the 15th General Election. But first we have to have a political exposure programme for young people," he told reporters after attending a function here Thursday (July 5) evening.
