Updated: Accession on Tuesday

It looks like Crown Prince Vajiralongkorn will be promulgated as king on 29 November.

We deduce this from a Khaosod report the states that the junta’s puppet assembly “will convene for a special session on Tuesday to be televised nationwide.” As a puppet parliament, this special session has been “ordered by the military government but did not specify a topic for the meeting.”

All puppet members of the puppet assembly are required to be present.

The giveaway on the nature of the meeting is in this: “Media are not allowed to speculate on the purpose of the session.”

Something could still go wrong, although we assume that the junta has consulted the prince and appropriate astrologers.

Update: The Dictator has spoken to the the Joint Foreign Chamber of Commerce of Thailand. Appearing to confirm the above, he states: “Everything is stable. And in a short time, we shall have a new King.”
