New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Admi Party will contest the upcoming 2014 elections from Delhi with broom as their party's symbol. The symbol was approved by the Election Commission on Wednesday.
"With this, the party has crossed the second milestone (after its registration) on its way to cleaning up the polity of the country," the party said in a statement.
With the 'broom' which symbolises dignity of labour, the party hopes to clean the filth which has permeated our government and our legislature. The country needs a clean sweep of its corrupted main stream political parties, it said.
AAP said it was happy that the Election Commission has allotted the party a reserved symbol of 'Broom' for all the 70 assembly constituencies of Delhi.
A week after its launch in December last year, Arvind Kejriwal led-Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had approached Election Commission for registration.
AAP national secretary Pankaj Gupta had submitted the papers regarding registration to the election commission.
The party got registration from Election Commission in March this year.
AAP would formally launch its election symbol in a public event on August 3.
