Voters in the tiny Himalayan nation of Bhutan are casting their ballots in the country's third general elections to decide which party will lead the young democracy for the next five years, AL Jazeera reports.

A total of 438,663 registered voters can choose candidates on Thursday for the 47-member National Assembly, or lower house of parliament, Election Commission secretary Dawa Tenzin said.

Roughly 100,000 were expected to vote by post.

"There is a lot of interest and enthusiasm among people for the elections across the country's 20 districts. We expect a good turnout," commission spokesman Sonam Tobgyal said.
