Sukumpol denies PTP leader rumour

Defence Minister Sukumpol Suwanatat has denied a report that he has been shortlisted to take over as Pheu Thai Party leader.

ACM Sukumpol said the speculation was unfounded and he had not even been approached to take on the job. ACM Sukumpol also said he lacks the needed experience and there are more suitable candidates than him. 

The new Pheu Thai leader will be selected by the party’s executive committee itself, he said.  

Asked by the reporters if would he reconsider if his name is put forward, he said that would be unlikely.
