PM 'sometimes' thinks like Thaksin

- +

STOCKHOLM - Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra said Monday during a visit to Sweden that she "sometimes" thinks like her brother and former premier Thaksin. 

''We've grown up together, so sometimes we think the same,'' Yingluck told reporters when asked about repeated allegations that she is merely holding down the fort until her brother, who was ousted in a 2006 coup, can return.

''But it doesn't mean when you think the same that you'll be under the shadow of him. Because if I'd be in the shadow of my brother ... I don't think we (could) gain more (of the) popular vote in Thailand,'' she added.
