AAP approaches EC for registration

Arvind Kejriwal

A week after its launch, Arvind Kejriwal led-Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday approached Election Commission for registration.

AAP National Secretary Pankaj Gupta submitted the papers regarding registration to the Commission, which will inform the party whether the documents were in order.

"Our meeting was brief. We've submitted our documents. The registration process will take around two-three months time," Gupta said.

He expressed confidence that the party will get an election symbol before the Assembly polls in Delhi next year.

After his split with Anna Hazare over the question of the anti-corruption movement taking a political plunge, Kejriwal had on November 26 formally launched AAP.
