Election commission registers Aam Aadmi Party as a political party
Aam Aadmi Party Monday got its registration from the Election Commission of India. The Election Commission has issued a registration letter stating, '... has registered the Aam Aadmi Party as political party under section 29A of the Representation of the People Act, 1951 on and with effect from 21/03/2013…'

This takes us one step closer to our dream of Swaraj, of delivering governance right into the hands of the people. As it is known that the nascent movement shook the foundations of corruption in India within months of its launch. Then on 2nd October these freedom fighters, all common citizens of India, took a vow to rescue democracy from the clutches of corrupt politicians by entering electoral politics themselves.

The party has not yet been issued any exclusive symbol; as per the rules and regulations the symbol will be allotted right before the notifications of contesting an election.

The application of registration was filed on 3 December 2012. Objections were invited from the public and the Election Commission received some objections regarding the names in response to the public notices published in newspapers. The commission found the objections unsuitable after hearing the clarifications/replies submitted by Aam Aadmi Party representative on 13 February 2013.

However, while issuing the registration certificate the Election Commission has directed the party not to use the National Emblem, Ashoka Chakra or any part in their letterhead or any other party materials in view of the provisions of the Emblems and Names (prevention of Improper Use) Act, 1950. The party has accepted this direction.
