Taur Matan Ruak: Mandatory military service for young males or female

INDEPENDENTE Monday, 12 March 2012 - TMR promised that he would institute mandatory military service if he is elected president for the period of 2012-2017. He said that the youth is the nation's strength, therefore it is important to look after them. Weak youth will lead to a weak nation.

"Military service will be mandatory, whether female or male. Anyone over 18 years of age must join the military. This is my policy number 5, to pay attention to the youth," TMR said during his rally in Baucau.

TMR said that he had already made a similar proposal to the National Parliament and the government between 2007 and 2008. However both organs rejected his proposal.
