Video: Yingluck confronts no-confidence debate

11-27-2012 13:49 BJT

Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra is facing a no-confidence debate launched by her opponents in parliament. The three-day debate comes after political protests turned violent in Bangkok.

Yingluck is being criticized over alleged irregularities in a rice pledging scheme and her flood response budget, and for failing to enforce anti-corruption laws. Yingluck, who is being accused by her rivals of being a puppet of her fugitive brother and former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, blamed the global economic recession and frequent natural disasters for the country’s current domestic crisis.

The motions are believed to have little chance of being passed by a legislature dominated by Yingluck’s Puea Thai party and its coalition partners.
