BANGKOK:- The Cabinet of Thailand on Tuesday submitted the name of crown prince Maha Vajiralongkorn to the country’s parliament, which paves the way for his approval as king several weeks after his father’s death.

“The secretary of the Prime Minister will inform the National Legislative Assembly,” said Prawit Wongsuwon, Deputy Prime Minister.

According to the procedure, the president of the assembly must then formally invite the Crown Prince to become a monarch before proclaiming the new king to the public.

“I expect that the president of the NLA can be granted a royal audience either tomorrow or the next day,” said Prawit, who is the number two of the Thai junta, adding that everything happens “gradually “.

Vajiralongkorn is the successor appointed to King Bhumibol Adulyadej who died on October 13 at 88 years, ending a reign of seven decades.

The death of his father plunges the kingdom into intense mourning. He also urged the crown prince to delay his proclamation as king in order to weep with the nation, according to the junta.

The timing of his ascension to the throne has been bleak, with officials as well as the general public reluctant to speculate on issues involving the monarchy – an institution protected by a majestic hard law.

Tuesday’s announcement puts to bed the anxiety over the estate. The prince is now in Germany, where he spends much of his time.
