Change in age limit from 25 to 21 for election
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
Why don't we reduce for people who contest elections from 25 to 21 years?
As most of the countries around the world have reduced the age limit for 18 years. In UK, anyone over the age of 18 years can stand for election to Parliament.
1) Don't you think that lowering the age to stand for election, might encourage young people to take part in elections?
2) Don’t you think that lowering the age for standing as a candidate, would increase the levels of trust between young people and politicians?
It is imperative to build on current political scenario and inculcate in young people an appreciation of the importance of voting as they begin to assume their responsibilities as young citizens.
Nearly 71% of urban youngsters showed interest in politics in 2011 as compared to 45% in 2009, according to CSDS. A youth representation (age group 25-40 years) of only 6.3 per cent in the current LOK SABHA, even though 50 % of the population lies in that age bracket, can’t be called parliamentary presence? Can it?
India is set to become the youngest country by 2020 & the average Indian will be 29 years. On the other hand, the average age of an MP is currently 63 years.
We should consider the passion with which young people are involving themselves in current political issues.
Given India's 'youth bulge', youngsters, if encouraged, could play a decisive role in the development of our country. THIS IS ROAD TO INDIA A GLOBAL POWER.
It's Time For The Youth To Be The Lotus Of Indian Politics.
We expect our Prime Minister to promise the nation if you really believe "Youth are just not the voters, they are the New Age Power”; Age to contest elections for the people will be reduced from 25 to 21 years.
