Around 12 million out of a total of 48.77 million eligible voters in Thailand failed to exercise their voting rights during Sunday's general election, which concluded at 3 p.m. local time, local media reported.

The 12 million voters are distributed in 53 constituencies where polling stations were closed on Sunday due to disruption from anti-government protesters, along with 28 constituencies that lack constituency-based candidates, according to the Nation channel.
