The Democrat Party has denied that divisions have emerged and that some members are planning to break away. 

Mallika Boonmeetrakul, a deputy spokesperson for the party, was responding to a local report that some former Democrat MPs planned to form another political group with Suthep Thaugsuban, who led the protests against the Yingluck Shinawatra government.
