Mr Wissanu said His Majesty made the decision after the organisers concluded that water levels and currents in the Chao Phraya River, and weather conditions, could pose a problem for the procession, and agreed to forward their concern to His Majesty for a decision.
The procession was planned to start at 3:30pm next Thursday. The King decided to postpone it to the same time on Dec 12, he said.
A full rehearsal was held today, before organisers decided to consult the King.
The procession is an extension of the King’s coronation ceremonies that began in early May.
The postponement will be formaly announced at a news conference on Monday, the deputy minister said.
