Tehran, Iran, Jan. 14 – Iran’s Guardians Council approved a bill that had been passed by Majlis (Parliament) last week to raise the country’s voting age from 15 to 18, a council spokesman announced on Saturday.

The new law concerns national elections in which those above the age of 15 had previously been permitted to vote, state television quoted Abbas-Ali Kadkhodai as saying. He added that the law, which took effect immediately, was approved by the Guardians Council on Wednesday.

The ultra-conservative Guardians Council is Iran’s highest vetting organ.
