Politburo member of the Central Committee of the Lao People's Revolutionary Party Thongsing Thammavong was appointed as Prime Minister of Laos on Wednesday morning, the first day of the First Session of the seventh Lao National Assembly (NA).

Thongsing was first appointed as Lao Prime Minister after a cabinet reshuffle in December 2010.

This session of the 132-member assembly, which was convened Wednesday in the Lao capital of Vientiane and will conclude on June 24, is to vote on the country's state leadership for the next five-year tenure and discuss issues relating to the assembly's apparatus.

The ten-day session will also define orientations for the NA's general affairs, discuss the government's seventh five-year socio-economic development plan for 2011-2015, and adopt the amended statute on tax.
