A move by the Pheu Thai party to get Yaowapa Wongsawat, another sister of ousted premier Thaksin Shinawatra, into the House could do more harm than good, some party members say. 

The party reportedly wants Mrs Yaowapa to be available as an MP in case her younger sister, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, is disqualified following a loan transaction probe by the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC).

The stage has been set after Mrs Yaowapa's close aide, Kasem Nimmonrat, abruptly resigned effective March 13, as a Chiang Mai MP, giving no explanation.
