BJT votes for Yingluck

- +

The opposition Bhumjaithai Party supported Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra in the no-confidence vote on Wednesday but has denied claims it did so because it wants to join the coalition government. 

Supachai Jaisamut, a BJT list MP, said the party's different decisions in today's vote were based on information presented during the censure debate.

BJT has 34 MPs - 27 in its main faction and seven in the Matchima faction. Of the 27, only 24 can perform their duty in parliament as three others have been suspended with legal problems over their qualifications.
