Censure debate put on House agenda

- +

House Speaker Somsak Kiatsuranon has agreed to put the opposition's motion of no confidence in Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and Interior Minister Charupong Ruangsuwan on the House agenda for debate. 

He also asked the Democrat Party to hand over to him a copy of the impeachment motion submitted to the anti-graft agency by Nov 25, claiming that without that advance information he would not be to properly control and supervise the debate.

Mr Somsak earlier refused to put the censure motion on the House agenda after it was submitted to him, saying the opposition did not attach details of the impeachment petition simultaneously filed against Ms Yingluck and Mr Charupong with the National Anti-Corruption Commission as part of standard procedure.
