From Manager, August 18, 2014
Man: Khun Leena Jung… please… don’t withdraw… It’s hard to find any applicants now… please…
On wall: NFA [National Reform Assembly] application
Caption: When needed… every applicant is valuable.
[Leena Jungjanja is a businesswoman and former candidate for Bangkok governor in 2004 (when she was disqualified for dancing while campaigning), 2008 (when she famously fell into a klong while campaigning) and 2009.
She ran for senator in 2014 and was barred from politics for five years for a campaign promise to lower the price of petrol to 20 baht per liter–something that is not in the purview of supposedly neutral senators. This also barred her from the National Reform Assembly.
She is the female version of the more common “boisterous Thai man.” This sort of person is an iconoclast who constantly seeks attention by opposing or criticizing everyone. Leena has attacked Thaksin, the Red Shirts, and now the coup.
This cartoon makes a joke of early reports that few people wanted to apply for membership in the National Reform Assembly, suggesting that the desperate assembly might even want a politician like Leena who no one takes seriously.]
