Abdullah: To reduce voting age to 18, and adopt women’s quota

Member of the Democratic Gathering, MP Bilal Abdullah, tweeted: “As the hybrid election law, which a segment of the Lebanese adheres to in response to the concerns of “right representation”, is the one that will be adopted with some non-essential amendments, it has become necessary for us to reduce the voting age to Eighteenth, and the adoption of a quota for women of 30% minimum, temporarily. Let us keep this amendment away from any sectarian accounts!
