Yingluck says no amnesty; Chalerm says of course there will be amnesty
Who do you believe? Yingluck Shinawatra, Pheau Thai prime ministerial candidate, says there won't be a proposed amnesty for her brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, even if she becomes the next prime minister.
Chalerm Yoobamrung, one of the key leaders of Pheu Thai, told a local newspaper that the draft law to offer amnesty to Thaksin had been drawn up and it would be submitted for House approval as soon as Pheu Thai assumes power after the election.
Pheu Thai nominal leader Yongyudh Vichaidit has said that any suggestion about an amnesty from Pheu Thai's party members was "strictly a personal view."
What do we make of these contradictions? Only time will tell who was speaking the truth.
