Election Commission has recognized AAP as a state-recognized party' in Goa and has given the party official recognition. After Delhi and Punjab, where AAP has already held power, this is the third state in which the party has achieved this status.
A tweet from Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal stated that the party will become a national party if it gained recognition in one more state.
"For the third time in as many months, AAP has been granted state recognition in Goa. We shall be formally recognized as a "national party" if we gain recognition in one more state. I want to express my gratitude to all of the volunteers for their time and effort. To all who have shown faith in AAP and its philosophy, I say thank you "The party's spokesman tweeted.
Based on an examination of AAP's 2022 legislative election performance, it is concluded that the party, which is currently registered as a recognized political party in the National Capital Territory of Delhi and Punjab with the reserved symbol of a broom, has met all of the requirements for recognition as a Goa state party following Para 6A of the Election Symbols (Reservation and Allocation) Order, 1968. That is why, following Goa's election symbols (reservation and allotment) order of 1968, the Commission has recognized Aam Aadmi Party as a "State Party," the EC said in a letter issued to AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal recently.
It was founded in 2012, shortly after the Jan Lokpal agitation, and the AAP was voted in as Delhi's second-largest political party in 2013. Because the anti-corruption Jan Lokpal Bill was not supported by Congress, the government resigned in 49 days.
President's Rule in the national capital ensued, and AAP returned to power in Delhi with a resounding victory in the 2015 Delhi election. In the 2020 elections, the party regained control of the capital city.
