    King appoints General Prem president of Privy Council

    His Majesty King Maha Vajiralongkorn Bodindradebayavarangkun on Friday issued a Royal Command appointing General Prem Tinsulanonda president of the Privy Council.

    Earlier, Deputy Prime Minister Wisanu Krea-ngam clarified that General Prem still remains president of the Privy Council after having completed his role as the Regent following the proclamation of the new King of the Kingdom of Thailand.

    Citing the Constitution, he said that the term of a member of the Privy Council ends when he dies, resigns or replaced by an order of HM the King.

    Regarding the traditional practice of granting Royal pardon on auspicious occasions after the proclamation of the new King, Dr Wisanu said that it was premature for him to discuss the matter, noting that authorities concerned would have to propose the matter first to the government.

    But as far as the government is concerned, he said that he would call a meeting of agencies concerned next week to make clarification on matters related to the installation of the new King.

    Apparently, General Prem is 96 years old.
