BANGKOK — The newly constructed parliament will be ready in May, the speaker of the junta-appointed National Legislative Assembly said Thursday.

 

Pornpetch Pichitcholchai said the new riverside parliament northwest of Bangkok would be fully completed a month later. He added that it’s unclear if it would be ready for the new elected MPs and appointed senate after general elections slated for Feb. 24.
