Thailand's King Vajiralongkorn has denounced as "inappropriate" his sister's unprecedented bid to run for prime minister in March's election.

In a palace statement, he said such an act would "defy the nation's culture".

Princess Ubolratana Mahidol, 67, has been nominated as a candidate for a party allied to divisive former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

Such a move would break with the tradition of the Thai royal family publicly staying out of politics.
