Agreement Between Monarchy And Parliament

In Thailand`s constitutional monarchy, the monarch is recognized as head of state, head of the armed forces, champion of the Buddhist religion and defender of the faith. Former King Bhumibol Adulyadej was the longest-serving monarch in the world and in Thailand`s history before he died on October 13, 2016. [20] Bhumibol has ruled several political changes in the Thai government. He played an influential role in every incident and often acted as an intermediary between reluctant political opponents. (See Bhumibol`s role in Thai politics.) Among the powers that the Thai monarch retained under the Constitution, majesty protects the image of the monarch and allows him to play a political role. It imposes severe criminal penalties for offenders. In general, the Thais were Bhumibol`s ehrf-rchge. Much of his social influence arose from this admiration and the efforts to improve the socio-economic life of the royal family. Elizabeth has been pragmatic about religion. She and her advisers recognized the threat of a Catholic crusade against England. Elizabeth therefore sought a Protestant solution that did not offend Catholics too much, while at the time of the wishes of English Protestants, but she would not tolerate the more radical Puritans who insisted on far-reaching reforms. As a result, parliament in 1559 began to legislate for a church based on the Protestant colony of Edward VI, with the monarch at its head, but with many Catholic elements. Finally, Elizabeth was forced to accept the title of Supreme Governor of the Church of England, instead of the more controversial title of supreme leader, which many considered unacceptable that a woman should wear it.

The new Law of Predominance was passed in 1559. All officials should swear allegiance to the monarch as supreme governor or risk dissociating themselves from the escape. The laws of the Kresiegesetz were repealed in order to avoid a repetition of Mary`s persecution of dissidents. At the same time, a new law on uniformity was passed, making it mandatory to visit the Church and use an adapted version of the book of common prayer of 1552, although the penalties were not extreme for those who did not stand.
