AAP likely to start MLA evaluation process soon for Vidhan Sabha election
NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party, by the end of this week, will start evaluation exercise for all the sitting MLAs as part of the preparation for the upcoming Vidhan Sabha election, which will take place in early 2020. Party sources said that after the evaluation, which will take nearly 2-3 months, the party will decide tickets distribution. As per sources, some sitting MLA might not get the ticket in the coming election.
"This is routine work for the party to evaluate the performance of our MLAs. Every one of our MLAs has worked hard and we have faith in them. But en election is a much larger thing and we have to keep in mind various factors," said a leader. He added that the AAP will also look into the public grievance about the MLAs before deciding it. "Public is the ultimate boss and for Vidhan Sabha election the image of the MLA is very important.
After the last election, in which the AAP received an absolute majority of 67 seats, the scenario in Delhi has changed in many ways. Many of the AAP MLAs received corruption charges and also became a rebel. "We do not believe in appeasement and we believe in work. We always respected the views of all the MLAs and volunteers. If someone thinks different then that's their business," said a leader.
Delhi Legislative Assembly election was held on 7 February 2015 to elect 70 members of the Sixth Legislative Assembly of Delhi. The results were announced on 10 February 2015. AAP secured an absolute majority in the assembly, winning 67 of the 70 seats.
