Caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Suthep Thaugsuban on Wednesday strongly denied the rumor that he met army chief Prayuth Chan-ocha before the chief appeared on television Tuesday calling on voters to turn out to elect "good people" on the July 3 election.

Suthep said the report was fabricated by some deceitful people to discredit the army chief.

Meanwhile, the army spokesman Colonel Sansern Kaewkamnerd Wednesday morning also dismissed as untrue the report of his supervisor seeing the deputy prime minister in person.

General Prayut on Tuesday encouraged Thai people to vote for good politicians to work for the country while the army will support the upcoming election with its utmost effort.
