    Background: KING SAVANG VATTANA OF LAOS PRESIDED OVER THE DISSOLUTION OF THE NATIONAL ASSEMBLY IN VIENTIANE, MAR 11. THIS WAS THE FIRST ENGAGEMENT OF THE KING WHO ARRIVED IN THE ADMINISTRATIVE CAPITAL FROM THE ROYAL CAPITAL, LUANG PRABANG, A FEW DAYS EARLIER.

    THE CEREMONY WAS ATTENDED BY PRIME MINISTER PRINCE BOUN OUM, OTHER MINISTERS AND THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS IN VIENTIANE. IN HIS SPEECH, THE CHAIRMAN OF THE ASSEMBLY, CHAO SOMSANITH, REFERRED TO THE EFFORTS BEING MADE TO FORM A COALITION GOVERNMENT IN THE COUNTRY.

    HE EXPRESSED THE COUNTRY'S GRATITUDE TO THE KING FOR HIS DISCUSSIONS ON THIS SUBJECT WITH NEUTRALIST LEADER PRINCE SOUVANNA PHOUMA. BUT CHAO SOMSANITH EXPRESSED SOME RESERVATIONS ABOUT PRINCE SOUVANNA'S NEUTRALITY. HE HOPED THAT THE DISCUSSIONS WOULD LEAD TO THE FORMATION OF A NATIONAL COALITION GOVERNMENT OF NEUTRALITY AND THE END OF THE CIVIL WAR IN LAOS.
