    Background: In Vientiane, the administrative capital of Laos, the newly-elected National Assembly was opened on Wednesday.

    Foreign diplomats were among those who attended the opening ceremony which was performed by King Sisavang Vatthana.

    Before the opening, the King inspected a guard of honour.

    In a short address, he urged the parliamentarians to serve the Kingdom loyally.

    The new assembly was elected on January 2. It has 60 members, one-third of whom are former military officials. Only 20 members of the previous assembly were elected this year.
