Will Undi18 Change Our Politics?

The government has said that it will work towards lowering the voting age from 21 to 18 by the end of this year. We explore the political implications of this move, given that it will translate to an addition of 1.2 million eligible voters in GE15. Then, we discuss how political parties will need to adapt to remain relevant. Finally, we look at the role of schools in expanding political awareness among the youth.
