KDS MPs propose letting parents vote on behalf of children

The four Conservative Democrats of Slovakia (KDS) MPs Vladimír Palko, František Mikloško, Pavol Minárik and Rudolf Bauer on Tuesday, March 3, submitted a proposal to change the constitution to allow parents to vote on behalf of their children, if those children are under the age of 18.

“We think that it’s necessary to improve the social status of families with children,” Mikloško said, according to the TASR newswire. “The current extremely low birthrate could lead to a trap. The number of families with children is falling. Politicians will therefore be under less pressure to care about the interests of families with children and will focus on other groups of voters. This may even worsen the demographic situation. We want to prevent this,” Palko added. TASR
