It was earlier reported that one of the candidates requiring qualification clearance was Pichit Chuenban, a potential Prime Minister's Office minister from the Pheu Thai Party.
Mr Pichit had served jail time for contempt of court in connection with the so-called "cash-stuffed paper bag" scandal, in which he represented former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra in a controversial land case in 2008.
TV Channel 3 reported on Saturday that Mr Pichit withdrew himself from the list.
The May 14 general election led to months of political wrangling, after election-winning Move Forward Party (MFP) leader and prime ministerial candidate Pita Limjaroenrat was rejected by conservative parliamentary blocs, including the junta-appointed Senate -- paving the way for runners-up Pheu Thai to form a controversial coalition government.
Political analyst Yuttaporn Issarachai said that the royal command indicates the country is one step closer to having a new government.
"The new cabinet needs to take an oath of allegiance before the king, and declare their policies in the parliament. Then, it will be considered fully-functioned," Mr Yuttaporn told AFP.
Some critics have pointed to the new cabinet's similarity to the previous one.
"Some people say it's the old cabinet with Pheu Thai in it. This is the result of forming the government with the rival parties," Mr Yuttaporn said.
