18 Years Old Enough For Army But Too Young For Polling Booth

MALAYSIA: Today democratic experts hailed the nation’s current policy of allowing 18-year-olds to voluntarily join the armed forces and use firearms on the understanding they were too young to go into a GE14 polling booth.

“The right to vote is something precious, and sacred,” said government democracy spokesman, Abdullah bin Bakar, “the 1.5 million Malaysians between the ages of 18 and 21 who might be a factor in the coming elections surely have better things to do than decide on the future of the nation they live in. Let them play on their Facegram or SnapTweets or whatever kids do these days, leave the ticking of ballot papers to the grown-ups or at least grown-ups over 21 who can vote!”

Regretting that their voices will not be heard for yet another term, the nation’s 1.5million 18 to 21-year-olds went back to the kid stuff they are permitted to do which includes, employment, signing legal contracts, purchasing property or business, paying tax, marriage, being tried as a criminal and smoking cigarettes.
