Building a house upside down

From Thairath, March 24, 2016
Title: A new house builder
On paper held by Meechai: Constitution, Democracy
On his suit: CDC [Constitution Drafting Committee]
On paper held by the soldier: Extend the power
Phi Nooring: You guys build it and then just stay in it yourselves.
A mouse: Don’t accept the constitution!

[Refers to the draft constitution written by the Constitution Drafting Committee (CDC) led by Meechai Ruchupan. The cartoon shows that while the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) led by the military promised to bring the country back to democracy soon, the reality is the opposite. The cartoonist contends that the draft constitution is the opposite of democracy and people have raised concern that this draft will be a tool to extend the power of the military.]
