Yingluck Shinawatra http://www.shanagrant.com

Yingluck Shinawatra (born 21 June 1967) is a Thai politician, the leader of the Pheu Thai Party, and the current Prime
Minister-designate of Thailand following the 2011 elections.

Born in Chiang Mai, Yingluck Shinawatra earned a bachelors degree from Chiang Mai University and a masters degree from
Kentucky State University, both in public administration. She became an executive in the businesses founded by her elder
brother, Thaksin Shinawatra, and rose over two decades to become president of property developer SC Asset and managing
director of Advanced Info Service, Thailand's largest mobile phone operator. Meanwhile, her brother Thaksin became
Prime Minister, was overthrown in a military coup, and went into self-imposed exile after a tribunal convicted him of abuse of power.

In May 2011, the Pheu Thai Party, which maintained close ties to Thaksin, nominated Ms. Shinawatra as their candidate
for Prime Minister in the 2011 Thailand general elections.[1][2] Preliminary election results indicated that Pheu Thai
won a landslide victory of at least 263 seats in the 500-seat House of Representatives of Thailand, making it only the
2nd time in Thai history that a single party won a parliamentary majority. Ms. Shinawatra is set to become Thailand's
first female Prime Minister.
