Thailand's embattled Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra easily survived a parliamentary no-confidence vote against her.

Prime Minister Yingluck won the vote of confidence with 297 lawmakers voting in her favour and 134 against.

Yingluck needed more than half, or 246 votes, out of the 492 votes in the lower house to survive the no-confidence vote.

The vote follows mass street protests in Bangkok by opposition protesters seeking to topple Yingluck's elected government.
