[Refers to a controversial appointment of the new Supreme Patriarch. Many groups have opposed Somdet Phra Maha Ratchamangalacharn, known as Somdet Chuang, as one of the candidates for a new supreme patriarch because he is close with the controversial abbot of Wat Phra Dammakaya, Phra Dhammachayo and for his alleged involvement in a scandal involving evading tax charges on luxury cars.
This cartoon contends that Somdet Chuang can be expected to be influenced by Thaksin or act on his behalf.
All of this is related to the fear of Thaksin and his supposed desire to control all parts of the Thai world.]
