BANGKOK -- The former leader of Thailand's dissolved opposition Future Forward Party vowed to carry on campaigning for true democracy in the Southeast Asian kingdom, despite a 10-year ban from politics.

"It doesn't mean I cannot be involved in political activities," Thanathorn said in an interview with the Nikkei Asian Review on Wednesday. "I can still talk, meet people, rally and campaign for what I believe."
