PAS secretary-general Datuk Takiyuddin Hassan on Tuesday said the Opposition would only support Pakatan Harapan's bid to amend the voting age, only if it accedes to three of its demands - lower the voting age to 18, allow automatic voter registration and allowing 18-year-olds to run in elections as candidates.

He added that a briefing with the Prime Minister and other Members of Parliament will take place on Wednesday.
