    NLA chants “Long Live the King”

    The National Legislative Assembly (NLA) today chanted "Long Live the King" after a special session to acknowledge the ascension to the throne by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn as the 10th King of the Kingdom.

    The NLA with a total of 243 members attending convened the special meeting at 11.19 am after it was officially notified of the earlier acknowledgement of the ascension to the throne this morning at a joint meeting of the Cabinet and the National Council for Peace and Order chaired by Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha.

    NLA president Pornpet Wichitcholchai told the NLA members that the acknowledgment was in line with Section 23, which remains in effect, after the nullification of the 2007 Constitution and of Section 2 of the interim constitution.

    Under these sections, if the King has appointed His Heir to the Throne, the cabinet will notify the NLA president, who will seek an acknowledgment from the assembly. The NLA president will then invite the Heir to ascend the Throne.

    Mr Pornpet said after the NLA has acknowledged the endorsement by the joint meeting and the next step the president will seek an audience with the Crown Prince and invite him to ascend the throne.

    He then told the NLA members “In this most auspicious occasion, I would like all NLA members to stand up and bless the new King.”

    All the 243 members then chanted “Long Live the King”.

    After the chanting, the NLA president then ordered the closing of the session at 11.25 am.

    According to the Bangkok Post, Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn was born on July 28, 1952 at Ambara Villa, Dusit Palace.

    He received his early education at Chitralada School, followed by Millfield School in Somerset, Britain, and The King’s School in Sydney, Australia.

    His formal education was followed by military training at the Royal Military College, Duntroon, in Canberra, Australia.

    He was proclaimed Crown Prince on Dec 28, 1972 in accordance with the centuries-old tradition in the stately Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall.
