SDM (Studenti Demokristjani Maltin) said that postponing local council elections “won’t help solve any problem related to electoral fatigue”.

They said this in the wake of the Government announcing that they will be opening a public consultation process related to their idea to postpone local council elections until 2019.

“After launching the vote16 campaign in 2013 to introduce voting rights for 16-18 year olds in local council elections, the government is now planning to postpone the local council elections to 2019,” SDM said. “This is highly contradictory. It will render the vote16 campaign meaningless.”

“We will be preparing a detailed document with proposals on how the Government can combat the so-called electoral fatigue,” SDM said.

SDM won the KSU elections once again last April. However, KSU have not yet said what their stance on this issue is.
