Untouchable gods are not politicians

From Arun, August 16, 2018
Lower left, Deputy PM Prawit: It is not a political party
On a man’s shirt: Political party [meaning political parties are banned from conducting activities]
On the house in the heavens: Three Companions

[Refers a the new political grouping called the “Three Companions” (or “Three Friends”) consisting of Deputy PM Somkid Jatusripitak, former transport minister Suriya Jungrungreangkit, and Sukhothai politician and a leader of Wang Nam Yom faction, Somsak Thepsuthin. This group has announced their intention to support PM Prayuth to become the new PM. They have started persuade many politicians, particularly from Thaksin’s side, to join their group and support PM Prayuth in this coming election.
The god in the cartoon is sucking up or absorbing politicians.
The Pheu Thai Party called on the Election Commission to investigate whether their actions violates the ban on political activities.
However, Deputy PM Prawit defended their action saying it did not violate the law as they are not a political party and they just discuss things with politicians as usual.
This cartoon ridicules the “Three Companions” an an untouchable god-like group which other cannot be touched because it supports the ruling junta.]
