  5. "Setiap orang mempunyai suara…

"Setiap orang mempunyai suara yang sama."

Translation:Everybody has the same vote.

February 10, 2019



Hmm, I think I have already commented on this elsewhere. What is the intended meaning of "the same vote"? Ballots that look the same? A single ballot for everyone? One person one vote? Voting for the same individual? I am guesing this is what Duolingo is trying to say: "Everybody has equal right to vote". This concept is known as 'universal suffrage'.


I translate it as.

Everyone has the same voice.


Why not "everyone"? Everybody = everyone!!!
