The censure debate will proceed as planned despite lingering questions over the MP status of opposition leader Abhisit Vejjajiva, House Speaker Somsak Kiatsuranont said yesterday. 

Mr Somsak said the debate, scheduled for Nov 25-27, will proceed as the legal wrangle surrounding the order issued by the Defence Minister to strip the military rank of Mr Abhisit has not yet been concluded.

The Defence Ministry has also ordered that the salary Mr Abhisit earned as a lecturer at the Chulachomklao Royal Military Academy be recalled.
