- +

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra has postponed a retreat with her Singaporean counterpart in order to take part in the no-confidence debate on the subject of her leadership, government spokesman Teerat Ratanasevi said on Friday. 

Last Friday the Democrats submitted a motion for a no-confidence debate against Ms Yingluck and Interior Minister Charupong Ruangsuwan. 

Mr Teerat said the debate is expected to be held on Nov 26-27 in the House of Representatives, with the no-confidence vote pencilled in for Nov 28, the last day of the current parliamentary session.
Ms Yingluck had been scheduled to attend a prime ministerial retreat in Singapore on Nov 26-27, but this has now been postponed until January next year.

The spokesman said a mobile cabinet meeting in Songkhla due to take place on Nov 29-30 will go ahead, adding that officials have been in the area preparing for the event.
