The former Conservative Party leader, Colin Craig, says a personal attack on him is not constructive, particularly when it is not accurate.
Mr Craig stood down as leader on Friday.
A Conservative Party board member, John Stringer, has said he was sick of a culture of confidentiality being used to cover up what he called abhorrent behaviour, and has raised other allegations.
Mr Craig said he would be asking for a retraction, as those allegations are untrue.
"Let's say at this stage it's really a retraction that makes the most sense, I would not rule out something beyond that, but I think the appropriate place to start is to perhaps get some correction on some of the things that he's said."
Mr Craig told Morning Report he was meeting with his lawyers today, but he hoped a sensible conversation with Mr Stringer would result in him withdrawing the remarks.
He said all financial matters relating to his former press secretary which were in dispute had been resolved.
Mr Craig said some of the allegations about him were particularly wild and was also not happy with some media articles about him.
