Youths demand facts instead of empty words- KNZIn a statement this morning, the National Youth Council of Malta (KNZ) expressed its disappointment towards the fact that youths between the ages of 16 and 17 years of age would not be given the right to vote in this upcoming general election.

The Prime Minister Joseph announced a snap election for the 3rd of June, at the May Day rally, held in Valletta yesterday.

KNZ said that it reignited the Vote 16 debate last September, where a motion was also tabled in Parliament to attempt to give youths this right.

It said that the motion was publicly supported by the every youth political party on the island (ADZ, FZL, MZPN, Pulse and SDM).

“It’s high time our politicians showed true, tangible faith in our country’s youth, instead of embellishing them with empty words,” said KNZ

      I am in agreement with 16-year-old voters, and I said so in many media comments but to ask Politicians to take action now is impossible because there is no Parliment starting from to-day. I do not consider myself an expert but I guess that it is a normal state of affairs that the Government during this particular time and in any country is called ‘a caretaker’ until the election and therefore the Gov. has no power to grant you your wish. I could be wrong but I doubt it.
