Ousted former premier Thaksin Shinawatra said Thursday it is not possible that the opposition Pheu Thai Party will become a coalition party in the current Democrat-led coalition government.

The Pheu Thai Party is the third incarnation of his Thai Rak Thai Party and People's Power Party, which were banned for violating election laws.

In his twitter -- Thaksinlive, Thaksin said many red-shirted supporters telephoned him to ask about a news report that Pheu Thai Party would decide to be a coalition party with the Democrat of Abhisit Vejjajiva.

"I told them that it was impossible," Thai language news agency INN quoted Thaksin as saying.

The Democrat and Pheu Thai Party are like water and oil and each has different culture, which could not work together, Thaksin said.

Ousted by the military coup, Thaksin was accused of corruption, and kept in exile since then. In February, 2008, Thaksin returned to Thailand to face corruption charges, but he later fled into exile again and was convicted in absentia.

However, Prime Minister Abhisit on Wednesday also denied a chance for the Democrat Party and the opposition Puea Thai Party to form a coalition government.
