Former transport minister Chadchart Sittipunt has denied a report he will rejoin Pheu Thai and be nominated as the party's candidate for prime minister in the next general election.

Mr Chadchart posted his denial of the story on his Facebook page on Wednesday.

"Pertaining to a report that I would return to conduct political work with the party or make way for some candidate, I would like to say that is not true. I have continued to visit various communities to see their problems as an individual. The latest area of my visit was Prawet district," he wrote.

In August, he posted a picture of himself with the caption: "Aug 12 - Today I and my team went to visit seven communities in Bang Lamphu area. They are Wat Sangwet, Wat Sam Phraya, Ban Phan Thom, Wat Mai Amatarot, Masjid Chakrapong, Bovorn Rangsi and Khian Niwat-Trok Kai Chae."

Mr Chadchart served a transport minister in the Yingluck Shinawatra government.

He resigned from the Pheu Thai Party last year, and announced his intention to run for election as Bangkok governor.
