BANGKOK -- A Thai political party that enjoys strong support from the younger population lost in all 42 provinces in which it was contesting for the provincial head.

In Sunday's local elections, Move Forward, the successor party to the now-banned Future Forward, sought the chief executive position of the provincial administrative organizations in 42 provinces and ran more than 1,000 candidates for PAO member slots in 52 provinces.
