Pakistan sees a surge in young voters, may play key role

ISLAMABAD: The number of young voters in Pakistan has surged to 56.8 million from 46.4 million in 2018 and they are expected to play a crucial role in determining the outcome of the upcoming polls.
On February 8, the nation of 240 million will vote in delayed polls already marred by claims of pre-poll rigging.
The huge number of young voters – a majority of whom use social media – could not only influence the electorate using propaganda tools on online platforms but even alter the electoral scene in several constituencies if they turn out in large numbers on election day, Dawn reported quoting analysts.
With the total number of voters totalling 128.5 million, the young voters numbering 56.8 million constitute 44.2% of the electorate. The proportion of young voters in 2018 was 43.8% of total voters.
