Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra on Friday called a meeting of related ministers to prepare for the upcoming censure debate, while the opposition whip reiterated it needed 3 days for the debate.

Yingluck met with Commerce Minister Niwatthamrong Bunsongphaisan, Finance Minister Kittirat Na Ranong, and Agriculture Minister Yukhol Limlaemthong, among others. Niwatthamrong disclosed after the meeting that the prime minister had assigned each minister to get information for the censure debate ready, adding that Yingluck did not seem perturbed by the upcoming debate.
