BANGKOK, 25 April 2017 (NNT) – The Cabinet has acknowledged a plan to make October 26 a national holiday in order to allow the people to take part in the royal cremation ceremony for His Majesty the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej. 

According to Assistant Government Spokesperson Col Athisit Chainuwat, the Cabinet has agreed to announce a public holiday on October 26, 2017, when the body of King Rama IX will be cremated. The move is to enable mourners across the country to participate in the royal function as proposed by the responsible committee. 

The royal cremation ceremony for the beloved King Bhumibol Adulyadej is scheduled to last five days, from October 25-29. 

In his capacity as chairman of the committee in charge of organizing the ceremony, Prime Minister Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha has submitted a letter to the Office of His Majesty’s Principal Private Secretary about the selection of King Bhumibol’s portraits to decorate sandalwood flower offering booths as well as the holding of an exhibition in honor of the late monarch throughout November.

Royal cremation ceremonies to be held Oct 25-29
By THE NATION

BANGKOK: -- THE Royal cremation ceremonies for HM the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej (King Rama IX) will be held between October 25 and 29.

 

October 26, the day of his |cremation, will also be a national holiday to allow members of the public to take part in the important event. 

 

King Rama IX passed away on October 13 last year, plunging Thailand into deep mourning. A large number of Thais continue to wear black and white today to grieve over his death. 

 

Throughout his seven-decade reign, King Rama IX worked tirelessly to improve the well-being of his people. In return, he won much love and reverence from his subjects. 

 

Assistant Government Spokesman Colonel Atisit Chaiyanuwat announced yesterday that HM King Maha Vajiralongkorn (King Rama X) |had approved the schedule. 

 

Atisit said Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam had proposed three options on how to facilitate people’s desire to join the royal cremation ceremonies. 

 

The first is to declare October 25 and October 27 as national holidays too, so that people from the provinces can travel to Bangkok for the ceremonies and then travel back in time to work again. 

 

The second is for October 25 and October 27 to be holidays for people living outside Bangkok and its adjacent provinces.

 

The third is to not declare any additional holiday and let people decide themselves how they can attend. 

 

Last Friday, King Rama X also approved the Office of the Prime Minister’s decision to declare his birthday, July 28, and the day of his father’s passing, October |13, as important days in Thailand. 

 

King Rama X ordered that royal ceremonies be held in remembrance of his father on October 13 every year, the same way royal ceremonies are held in commemoration of his great grandfather, King Rama V.
