Moldova's interim President: Voting age should be lowered to 16
Interim President and Speaker Mihai Ghimpu said yesterday that he would like for the Moldovan Constitution to include a provision that lowers the voting age to 16.
The new authorities have formed a commission to investigate the possibility for constitutional change in Moldova. Several Venice Commission experts will arrive in Chisinau this week to assist in the process.
Lowering the voting age was one of the proposals voiced by the commission. Other proposals are changing the language name from "Romanian" to "Moldovan" and replacing the name of "village" with "commune."Imedia
