Yaowapa as PM rumours rile party

- +

Pheu Thai Party members have expressed concern at suggestions that Thaksin Shinawatra's younger sister Yaowapa Wongsawat could be groomed to take over as premier. 

Sources said the members felt such a move, should Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra be forced from office, would do the party more harm than good.

It's believed senior party members had tipped Mrs Yaowapa to take over in case Ms Yingluck is disqualified over a loan transaction probe by the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC).
