There is no division among Pheu Thai MPs over the party's candidate for the post of Bangkok governor, Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra insisted on Saturday. 

Ms Yingluck was responding to reports that there was a division in the governing party between MPs who supported Khunying Sudarat Keyuraphan and backers of Pol Gen Pongsapat Pongcharoen.

Khunying Sudarat is a former cabinet member and executive of the defunct Thai Rak Thai Party founded by Thaksin Shinawatra. Pol Gen Pongsapat is the secretary-general of the Office of the Narcotics Control Board.
