UPDATE: NLA royal command out

A royal command appointing the National Legislative Assembly (NLA) president and two deputies has been issued, Senate secretary-general Norarat Pimsen said on Sunday.

Ms Norarat, the acting NLA secretary-general, said the royal command formally appoints Pornpetch Wichitcholachai as NLA president and Surachai Lengboonlertchai and Phirasak Porjit as first and second NLA deputy presidents.

She said the NLA president has subsequently issued an order calling for the second meeting of the NLA on Monday, Aug 18, at 10am.

An urgent motion for consideration by the NLA will be the setting up of a committee to draft the NLA's meeting regulations and a temporary committee on NLA affairs.

Next on the agenda will be the draft 2015 Budget Bill proposed by the NCPO chairman.
