BE 2526 (1983)
Bhumibol Adulyadej, R.
Given under Our Hand this 19th Day of March, BE 2526 (1983);
Being the 38th Year of Our Reign.
Phra Bat Somdet Phra Paraminthra Maha Bhumibol Adulyadej is graciously pleased to proclaim that:
Whereas the Prime Minister informed Us that there have been four motions for amendment of the Constitution with respect to the Representative election process, but the public and the Representatives could not yet adopt any conclusive resolution thereon; that the application of any new representative election process would, at this time, bring about the political conflicts and violence and lead to the fall of the economic and social system, the unity of the national people and the democratic regime of government; and that it is therefore desirable to dissolve the House of Representatives in order to organise a general election of the new Members thereof;
Be it decreed by the King's most Excellent Majesty, by virtue of sections 101 and 159 of the Constitution of the Kingdom of Thailand, as follows:
This Royal Decree shall be cited as the "Royal Decree Dissolving the House of Representatives, BE 2526 (1983)".
This Royal Decree shall come into force upon its publication in the Government Gazette.
The House of Representatives shall be dissolved.
A general election of new Representatives shall be conducted on 18 April 1983.
The Minister of Interior shall be in charge of this Royal Decree.
- General P. Tinsulanonda,
- Prime Minister.
