National Student and Youth Council Chairman Yuval Kahlon listed the Council's demands to the new Knesset: "Our first demand is to promote equal share of the burden, the second is to advance education and our third and primary demand is to lower the voting age to 17."
Kahlon added: "We represent 700,000 teens, a massive force. At 17, youths are sufficiently involved and have the ability to influence the State's future. Youths are clamoring for the government's regard." (Shahar Chai)
