Justice Joseph, however, said he was approached by political parties.
Speaking to IANS, Joseph who retired from the apex court last year, said he has been informally approached by people from both the Congress-led United Democratic Front (UDF) and the CPI(M)-led Left Democratic Front (LDF).
"Several people have informally approached me from both the political fronts asking if I would be interested in contesting polls. From the UDF, it was the Kerala Congress (Mani) that asked my opinion. From the other front also, I was approached. But my answer to all has been I am not at all interested," he said.
Interestingly, both the fronts are in search of suitable candidates for the Lok Sabha polls, which is just few months away.
Joseph, in his student days, was active in politics.
