Democrats expect 130-135 constituency seats
The party is expected to win 55 seats via proportionate vote for party-list candidates.
In addition to Bangkok's 22 seats, the Democrats are projected to secure 24 seats in the Central Region, 12 in the East, 48 in the South, 15 in the North and nine in the Northeast.
About 26 constituencies are under the neck-and-neck race and the balloting outcome might favor the Democrats.
Additional seats could come from Bangkok (five seats), the Central Region (six seats), the East (three seats), the South (two seats), the North (six seats) and the Northeast (four seats).
The projection indicates a major defeat in Chonburi where the Democrats would loss five of eight seats being contested. A surprise victory is expected in Udon Thani, seen as the capital of the red shirts, where the Democrats might grab two seats.
