Mr Jatuporn, of the red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD), said he considers himself part of the Pheu Thai Party and the red-shirt group and therefore he would never move against the Pheu Thai-led administration.

There were some differences in ideas and views between the UDD and the government, but these could be settled through discussion, he added.

Mr Jatuporn believed the rumour was instigated by political rivals attempting to create conflict between the government and UDD.

Asked about the UDD’s plan to propose its draft amnesty bill to the government, Mr Jatuporn said UDD leaders will soon discuss with the prime minister on whether the issuance of the planned law is against the charter.

Deputy Commerce Minister Natthawut Saikuar, also a red-shirt core member, will mediate to arrange a meeting between Ms Yingluck and UDD co-leaders, he said.
