Anti-corruption activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal has finally named his party - the Aam Aadmi Party. Aam Aadmi Party will fight elections and challenge the existing parties. The details of its constitution and plans for the future have also been outlined.

 

 

The christening was done in the presence of 300 members at its first meeting at the Constitution Club in the national capital. With that, a national council of the party has been set up and the party constitution has also been adopted. The national council will elect a 30-member national executive, the party's highest decision-making body. Interestingly, the party will not have a President, Vice President or General Secretary, but will have only a national convenor to be elected by the national executive. This has been done to avoid a “high-command style” of working.

 

 

Interestingly, the meeting was held behind closed doors. It will now be followed by a "youth rally" on Sunday, from Rajghat to Shaheed Park. The Aam Aadmi Party will be formally launched at Jantar Mantar this Monday. All those who turn up at Jantar Mantar on Monday will be treated as founding members of the party.  Interestingly, the launch date - November 26 is the day the Constitution of India was adopted in 1949.
