Title: Set the scene
Phi Nooring: The power is behind the scene
Mouse: Don’t cheat the people
In a front of the wall: The NCPO will be banned for 5 years
On a suit of Wissanu Krea-ngam: Political counsel [Wissanu Krea-ngam is a Secretay-General of the Cabinet]
On the suit of the man sitting down: Independent agencies
On the baton: Justice of the Constitutional Court
On the sword: Partisan senators
Behind the wall on the sleeve: NCPO
The quilted sleeve refers to Privy Councilor Prem
The man holding the wall is constitution author Meechai’s suite: CDC

[This refers to the new draft constitution. It was mentioned that perhaps it might ban members of the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO; the junta) from participating in the political activities in the future.
The cartoonist is skeptical that any prohibition would stop non-elected powers from interfering with the actions of an elected government. Even if the junta were banned, there are still many ways independent oversight agencies could be used to block an elected party from taking action.]
