BANKGKOK, November 28. /ITAR-TASS/. National Assembly of Thailand, the country’s parliament, did not support the vote of no confidence regarding Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra; she breezed through the vote with 297 deputies against and only 134 for it.
The vote was initiated by the opposition Democrat party and was issued after two day-long debates. The party promised to present hard evidence of corruption schemes, allegedly conducted by Shinawatra and Yongyuth Wichaidit, Thailand’s Interior Minister.
The Prime Minister herself was present at the discussion and refuted all allegations. She also stood by the economic reforms which her cabinet was conducting and which were the focus of the opposition’s backlash.
