As her fugitive brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, proclaims her as his "clone," Yingluck Shinawatra has formally been voted the No.1 candidate on the Pheu Thai party list system to compete against the Democrat Party's Abhisit Vejjajiva for the next premiership in Thailand's July 3 election.

Pheu Thai's de facto leader Thaksin Shinawatra, who now lives in self-exile in Dubai, has confirmed he chose Ms Yingluck, his younger sister, but denied that she is his proxy. "Some said she is my nominee. That's not true. But it can be said that Yingluck is my clone," former prime minister Thaksin said in an interview.

Yesterday's vote at the Pheu Thai Party was taken in the absence of Ms Yingluck. She was told to travel to the party to hear the decision an hour after the vote.

She thanked all party members for their support and said she felt honored to be nominated. She said she was confident Pheu Thai's policies could answer the needs of the public. "I intend to enter politics and work for the people. I want unity and reconciliation to return to the country," Ms Yingluck said.
