Chiz bats for registration extension

Opposition Sen. Chiz Escudero yesterday urged the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to extend the registration of new voters up to December give more of the youth the opportunity to vote in the May 2010 elections.

“The youth is not apathetic as some would want to portray them, because it is they who will inherit this country,” the 39-year-old senator said at a student forum held at the University of the East.

“If some of them are apathetic, then it is government that has failed to inspire them to register and vote,” Escudero added.
