NLA to vote for PM by roll-call

- +

A candidate for prime minister will need at least 99 votes from the National Legislative Assembly to win the seat but need not make a presentation of his plans and ideas nor be present in the chamber when members verbally name their choice, according to Jate Siratharanont. 

Mr Jate, spokesman for the NLA affairs committee, or NLA whips, said this was agreed at the meeting of the whips on how to vote to select the new prime minister.

It was also agreed at the meeting that the NLA president and vice-presidents could decide by themselves whether or not to take part in the vote.
