Changing party system in Delhi and the emergence of Aam Aadmi Party
|Tuesday, 28 November 2017, 3:45 p.m.|
|Conference Hall, Centre for Policy Research|
The presentation analyses the emergence of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the context of systemic changes in the nature of political competition in Delhi.This is done against the back drop of Delhi’s unique constitutional position, party system in the state, reasons behind the emergence of AAP and subsequent reversals in its political fortunes.
The analysis is done through the detailed study of post-poll electoral surveys and the election results in 2013, 2014, and 2015 elections. The attempt here is also to look at the nomination procedure and campaign strategy adopted by APP gleaned through the extensive interviews of the political actors involved.
