GEN X PEOPLE reportedly constitute the largest generation of eligible voters to go to the polls on Sunday, according to the Department of Provincial Administration.
Of a total of 52.24 million eligible voters nationwide, there are 20.88 million Gen Xers, followed by 17.98 million Gen Yers and 9.32 million Baby Boomers.
In addition, there are 2.95 million pre-Baby Boomers and 1.09 million Gen Zers, the department reported.
No less than 75% of all eligible voters are expected to cast their votes in both constituency-based mode for 400 MPs and party-listed mode for 100 MPs on Sunday.
Unofficial results of the nationwide election are expected four to five hours after all voting units have been closed at 5 p.m.
Major contesting parties are the Pheu Thai under de facto party boss/deposed prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra largely speculated to get most of the total 500 MPs, the Move Forward led by Pita Limjaroenrat for whom most of the Gen Yers and Gen Zers are expected to vote, the Ruam Thai Sang Chart under de facto party boss/caretaker prime minister Prayut Chan-o-cha, the Palang Pracharath headed by Prawit Wongsuwan, the Bhumjaithai under de facto party boss Newin Chidchob, the Thai Sang Thai led by Sudarat Keyurapan and the Democrats, among others.
