The session today was scheduled for 9.30am-10pm. The rest part of the debate would continue tomorrow and there would not be a vote in the session.
Parliament president Chuan Leekpai said members of the parliament and cabinet ministers could raise any subject for debate concerning the coronavirus disease 2019, the blockage of a royal motorcade that led to the declaration of the state of severe emergency and a series of anti-government demonstrations that prompted a crackdown with water cannons. Mr Chuan said that the debate was likely to be problem-free and everyone had duties to perform.
