Holding elections hostage


From Thairath, March 13, 2015
Title: Stop! Or it [elections] will die.
On the ballot box: Election
On sign held by man: Creating disorder
On a man with cap: Riot
On a man with sunglasses: Creating violence
Phi Nooring: Using the ballot box as a hostage
A mouse: Can you control this?
[The junta has implied that signs of violence or political disruption could impact the scheduling of new elections. The cartoonist seems to criticize this and say that violence and rioting are beyond anyone’s control and should not be linked to eventual elections.
Update: Kaewmala notes via Twitter that the message is actually that the violence is manufactured (with the intent to stall elections) since the signs read “creating disorder” and “instigating situations.”]
