The coming election will be a battle between these two

From Thairath, November 9, 2017
Title: Having good things in hands, don’t need to be afraid of big fists.
Sign on boxer at left: Come from people [meaning politicians who are elected]
On his shorts: Democracy
On shirt of the boxer at right: Return the happiness party [the junta’s motto is “return happiness to the people” thus this suggests that the military will form its own political party]
On his shorts: Appointing of friends
Phi Nooring: The big match next year.
Mouse: The good one will win.

[This means that the coming election will be battle between regular political parties and a military-based political party which has used its control of the government to use funds to buy support with its populist policies.]
