The coup leader denied that he had met community leaders in several countries with an intention to build his support base for the upcoming elections, saying that it was his job to oversee national security and speak with local government officials.

His close aide Panlop Pinmanee had recently said that Gen. Sonthi would run under the Rak Chart banner. But Gen. Sonthi said the party had nothing to do with him.

Moreover, Gen. Sonthi also said he does not know that this party is founded to be a nominee for retired soldiers. He told reporters to ask a Rak Chart founder, Khajit Hapnanont for the detail.

When asked by a reporter whether he would fear anything if he decided to play politics, Gen. Sonthi denied, saying there is nothing to be scared of as he has already staged a coup, according to the report.
