Serious discussions between sisters

Premier Yingluck Shinawatra is seen here conversing with her sister, Yaowapa Wongsasasdi, in Parliament yesterday -- just as things were going wrong, once again, in Parliament.

It was the latest in a series of unfortunate incidents in the House when about 26 Pheu Thai MPs were found to be absent -- the parliamentary session was therefore forced to end because of the lack of a quorum.

It was supposed to be another day of a heated debate on the Senate's constitutional amendment. Yesterday's session was to discuss Section 7 covering the process of senators' election.

Yaowapa, who is in charge of imposing discipline among Pheu Thai MPs, was said to have been quite irritated by the mishap. She was quoted by a close aide as threatening to punish the absent MPs by not fielding them in the next election.

It wasn't clear what the sisters were exchanging in this picture. But whatever the topics, they couldn't be very pleasant.
