Thailand’s first female Prime minister, Yingluck Shinawatra, speaks to Cyril Payen about her first year in office. It has been a tough 12 months, with floods killing over 500 people last October. Yingluck Shinawatra also discusses her plans to increase the minimum wage. She denies having been elected for having the same name as her brother Thaksin, the former prime minister who is now in exile in Dubai.
