AMs aim to lower vote age
SOUTH West Wales AM Bethan Jenkins is among a number of Assembly Members to throw her support behind a debate on lowering the voting age to 16.
Despite the fact the Assembly has no power to change the voting age, Ms Jenkins is among a number of AMs who has put forward a motion on the idea calling for a change in the law.
Another AM supporting the motion is Conservative Paul Davies.
He said: "As a country, we are willing to see our young people join the armed forces at the age of 16, have children and get married and yet we seem to think that youngsters are not mature enough to vote at that age."
