Lower House approves teen vote

The Lower House of Congress approved the government-sponsored teen suffrage bill, that allows 16-18 year olds the chance to vote in national elections, by 131 votes in favour and 2 against.

Although many lawmakers left the floor during the speech of Victory Front's Andrés Larroque, the Kirchnerite bloc managed to muster quorum and along with the support of other parties, the controversial law was approved.

The pro-government initiative establishes that the vote will be optional for those between 16 and 18 years old.

The Upper House of Congress had preliminary approved the bill with 52 votes in favour and only three against.
