Voting at 18
Tharmelinggem Pillai, Director of Undi18
At 18, you're eligible to pay income tax, you can drive, you can get married, and be tried in court as adult. But...you can't vote. While most countries have dropped their voting age to 18, Malaysia still lags behind and is among some 20 nations that still have a minimum voting age of 21. We speak to Tharmelinggem Pillai, who believes it's time we let 18 year-olds vote.
