Yaowapa Wongsawat, the Pheu Thai Party candidate contesting the by-election in Chiang Mai's Constituency 3 tomorrow, is expected to win comfortably with at least 100,000 votes, a party source said. 

As a sister of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra and current premier Yingluck Shinawatra, Ms Yaowapa is considered a clear favourite in the by-election in her native province, a Pheu Thai stronghold.

The by-election will be a battle between Ms Yaowapa and the Democrat candidate Kingkan Na Chiang Mai. Constituency 3 covers San Kamphaeng, Doi Saket and Mae On districts.
