18-year olds should be given immediate voting right - ADProf. Arnold Cassola, Alternattiva Demokratika – The Green Party, spokesperson on EU and International Affairs, stated, “by giving Maltese voters the immediate right to vote on the day of their 18th birthday Malta would be simply joining the majority of European countries, where voting rights are tied to the attainment of majority age and not to eventual publication months later in an electoral register. Indeed, AD, being the progressive party in Malta, has long been proposing that voters should be given the right to vote at local and European elections at the age of 16.”

Michael Briguglio, AD Chairperson, said, “AD supports democratization of Malta’s electoral process including right to vote to 16 year olds and to ensure all legal rights to Maltese living abroad. Democratization includes electoral reform beyond the PNPL duopoly.”
