‘We Will Be Declared As A National Party If…’: Kejriwal After AAP Recognised As State Party

New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday said it has been accorded ‘state party’ status in Goa by the Election Commission based on a review of its performance in the February Assembly elections. The Arvind Kejriwal-led party has already got state party status in Delhi and Punjab, where it is in power. Referring to the official letter received from the Election Commission, the party’s national convener Kejriwal said, “After Delhi and Punjab, AAP is now a state recognised party in Goa too. If we get recognised in one more state, we will officially be declared as a national party.”

According to a letter from the Election Commission shared by Kejriwal on Twitter, the Election Commission has recognised AAP as the state party in Goa based on a review of the party’s performance in the assembly elections.

“On the basis of review of poll performance of the Aam Aadmi Party at the general election to the Legislative Assembly of Goa, 2022, it is observed that the Aam Aadmi Party, presently, a registered recognised party in the NCT of Delhi and State of Punjab with ‘Broom’ as its reserved symbol, has fulfilled the conditions laid down in Para 6A of the Election Symbols (Reservation & Allotment) Order, 1968 for recognition as a state party in the state of Goa,” the EC’s letter read.

“Accordingly, the Commission has granted recognition to the Aam Aadmi Party as a State Party in the State of Goa also under the provisions of the Election Symbols (Reservation & Allotment) Order, 1968,” it said.

The Election Commission said that a notification in this regard would be issued in due course. Kejriwal congratulated party workers on this achievement and thanked people for reposing faith in AAP and its ideology.
