The National Legislative Assembly (NLA) should be able to deliberate on the 2015 fiscal budget tomorrow, NLA president-elect Pornpetch Wichitcholchai said yesterday.

He added that if he and the two vice presidents-elect – Surachai Liengboonlertchai and Peerasak Porchit – were royally endorsed by today, then the NLA could focus on the budget bill tomorrow. If this happens, then the NLA voting on the new prime minister can be expected to be held next week.

If the NLA chiefs are not endorsed by today, then the budget bill deliberation must be postponed to next week, he said.
