Voter turnout of elderly citizens in the 2012 presidential election was much lower than about 90 percent tallied in exit polls conducted by broadcasters, the National Election Commission (NEC) said on Feb. 15.

Turnout of people in their 50s reached 82 percent, up 5.4 percentage points from the 2007 presidential poll, the NEC said. The comparable figure for those in their 60s stood at 80.9 percent, up 4.6 percentage points from five years earlier.

Meanwhile, turnout of people in their 20s in the 2012 poll was 68.5 percent, up more than 20 percentage points from the 2007 election, the NEC said. The figure for those aged between 30 and 34 was 67.7 percent, up 16.4 percentage points from 2007.
