Thailand votes: Young voters prepare for Sunday's election

How millions of young first-time voters could make a difference in Thailand's election.

by

    Almost 52 million eligible voters in Thailand head to the polls on Sunday for the country's much-delayed general election.

    Millions of young people will be voting for the first time since the last election eight years ago.

    Many of them say a desire for change has made them politically active, something a new party is hoping to capitalise on.
