Meechai: I draft this constitution as my last constitution… Then, I will stop.
2nd man from the right: Ao… Then, when it’s our turn to do a coup, who will draft the constitution for us?
1st military from the right: Um!
Caption: Bad news for the revolutionaries
[This shows Meechai Ruchupan, chairman of the Constitution Drafting Committee, who helped the junta draft the new constitution. He vowed he would no longer participate in writing further charters.
The military has always looked to respected legal figures to draft post-coup charters. The refusal of figures like Meechai to participate in such a process again leaves the leaders of future putsches without respected legal figures to lend their charters legitimacy.]
