Yingluck to be nominated for Nobel Prize?

By Coconuts Bangkok January 7, 2014 / 15:45 ICT

He’d barely been elected when U.S. President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009.

Now, nominating Thailand’s embattled (caretaker) prime minister for a Nobel Prize of her own was the highlight of a speech made this afternoon by a Puea Thai Party election candidate and the deputy minister of Agriculture and Cooperatives.

A troop of Puea Thai Party election candidates gathered in the heart of Sukhothai province today and spoke on stage in front of 10,000 locals, who came to give flowers and support to the politicians.

Besides encouraging citizens to go to the elections on Feb. 2, Sunai Jullapongsathorn announced on stage that if Yingluck Shinawatra is elected the prime minister of Thailand once again, the party will nominate her for the Nobel Peace Prize since she has tried her best to compromise and settle the disagreements between Thais, Post Today reported.
