AAP Names Bhagwant Mann as Punjab CM Candidate

Tuesday, 18 January 2022

Chandigarh: Aam Aadmi Party national convenor Arvind Kejriwal today named Lok Sabha MP from Sangrur constituency in Punjab as Chief Ministerial candidate for the upcoming assembly elections.

The party ran a televoter campaign and asked people to choose CM candidate. Bhagwant Mann received more than 93 per cent of the votes received through phone and WhatsApp.

AAP received around 22 lakh responses under its campaign to elect its CM face for the assembly polls.

Around 3 per cent voted for Punjab Congress Chief Navjot Singh Sidhu. A few votes that were in favour of Mr Kejriwal were declared invalid.

Kejriwal said,"It is clear that AAP will win the Punjab election. In a way, the person chosen as the Chief Ministerial candidate will be the next Chief Minister of Punjab."

In 2017 Punjab assembly elections, the Aam Aadmi Party went into the polls without declaring a chief ministerial candidate but failed to form a government. It won 20 seats and became the principal opposition in the state.
