A CEREMONY HELD FOR THE FATHER OF THE KING OF THAILAND
Thousands of people gathered in the capital, Bangkok, in Thailand for the birthday of King Maha Vajiralongkorn’s dead father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
In Thailand, King Maha Vajiralongkorn, accompanied by thousands of people wearing royal yellow clothes in front of the Grand Palace, held a candle burning ceremony in memory of the 93rd birthday of his father, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, who died 4 years ago.
One of the attendees of the ceremony, Sirinan Jungwatmunee, said that the monarchy has been going on for centuries and that this cannot be changed with the protests that have been held for only a few months.
The Thai government had asked the people to show their allegiance to the royal family by inviting them to the birthday ceremony of King Bhumibol Adulyadej.
In Thailand, anti-government protests started on December 14, 2019, after the opposition Future Forward Party was closed and expelled from parliament following the controversial 2019 general election.
On October 29, Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-oça responded positively to some of the protesters’ demands, announcing that the government-appointed senate members to participate in the prime minister’s vote in the parliament after the general elections would be removed.
Various opposition groups opposing the pressure of military tutelage and the monarchy in politics demand the resignation of the military junta government, which maintains its power thanks to the constitutional changes it has created, the constitutional reform for fair elections and the immunity of the monarchy to be lifted and subordinated to the rule of law.
