,The Youth and Sports Ministry wants the Election Commission (EC) to clarify the progress of Undi 18, an initiative to lower the voting age from 21 to 18.Youth and Sports Minister Reezal Merican Naina Merican said this is so that the people can get clear and correct information about the matter.He said that as an independent entity, the EC should explain the situation because the policy to lower the voting age to 18 is already at the implementation stage.“The law has been passed and gazetted and amendments to the Constitution have been made to implement voter registration of persons when they turn 18.“The EC must come forward to explain the road map, the process and planning and how it is to be implemented. This is the stage of implementation and it is a long process. There must be further amendments, coordination, amendments to the state constitutions, all these must be explained by the EC,” he told Bernama and RTM in a special media conference at his residence in Shah Alam.Reezal Merican said his ministry cannot take the lead on the matter as it is the EC’s role to explain the direction of Undi 18, including voter registration, voting rights and eligibility to stand as a parliamentary candidate at that age.Reezal Merican, who is also Umno's Kepala Batas MP, said Undi18 should be defended and must become a reality because 211 MPs had put aside their political ideology to support the cause.He was responding to claims by certain leaders, including Bersatu's Dewan Negara speaker Rais Yatim, that the country is still not ready to allow 18-year-olds to vote although the Dewan Rakyat had passed the Constitution (Amendment) Bill 2019.- Bernama
