The Thai Parliament speaker Chuan Leekpai is ordering tight security at the new Parliament House in Bangkok’s Kiak Kai area for an inaugural meeting today.

He declined to answer when asked by reporters to make any comment on Friday morning’s bomb and arson attacks in the city, saying only that citizens should be vigilant about possible further attacks.

Chuan said the Janthra Hall in the new Parliament House was now ready for use although other parts of the building remain under construction.

Sorasak Phianvej, Secretary General of the House of Representatives, says the Secretariat of the House of Representatives has announced the cancellation of meetings of Members of the House of Representatives and senators this week as utilities and technology systems are moved from the temporary meeting room, at TOT Headquarters on Chaeng Wattana Road, to be installed in the new parliament building, Sappayasaphasathan, Kiak Kai intersection.

Chuan Leekpai toured the TOT conference hall that’s acted as a temporary parliamentary meeting place last week. He said the venue is now being handed back to the TOT and repairs made to any damage made during the use of the new parliament’s early sittings.

    Io sono cresciuta con l’idea che ci dovesse essere un unico amore per tutta la vita. E siccome ne ho avuti già tanti i grandi amori, all’amore non ci credo più. Ma ci ricasco sempre.
