Title: German model – A solution for Thailand’s electoral system
[Refers to a recommendation by Prof. Dr. Nakharin Mektrairat, one of the constitution drafters, to adopt a German-style electoral system with a party-list system. This is essentially to prevent a single party–no doubt controlled by Thaksin–from controlling the government.
This makes a joke about the “German Standard” electoral system and “American Standard” toilets which are widely used in Thailand.
It shows a Thai man in traditional dress who is not tall enough to use a German standard toilet. This suggests, perhaps, that the new system is not appropriate for Thai culture.]
