PM-elect Srettha Thavisin is scheduled to receive a royal command, endorsing him as the new prime minister of Thailand, this evening (Wednesday), said Kampee Ditthakorn, spokesperson of the House of Representatives said on Wednesday.

Following parliament’s election of the new prime minister yesterday, the Secretariat of The House of Representatives submitted a letter, signed by the parliament president, to the King for approval.

Kampee said His Majesty has already endorsed Srettha as the new premier and that the Secretariat’s letter will receive the royal seal today, adding that Srettha is expected to receive the royal command at the Pheu Thai party’s headquarters at 6pm.

Kampee dismissed earlier reports that the endorsement process had been completed yesterday, saying that it was still being processed at that time.
