Pro-Junta groups and the pro-democratic groups

From Thairath, December 1, 2018
Title: This time… is the easiest for voting
Poster on the left: Love democracy
Poster on the right: Support the dictatorship
Phi Nooring: Whichever party you like, then you can choose.
Mouse: Call for returning democracy
Lizard: Don’t change the color

[Refers the coming election in next year. The cartoon shows that there are two overall groups competing in this election. One is the pro-junta groups and the other is the pro-democratic groups.
The lizard refers to the Thai proverb “a lizard changes the color” that refers to a person, particularly a politician, who radically changes their own views or ideas for their own benefit or to join other groups, particularly to win an election.]
