Changing party system in Delhi

Dear colleagues,

The Centre for Social Sciences and Humanities (CSH) and the Centre for Policy Research (CPR) are delighted to invite you to their joint workshop on: 
 
‘Changing party system in Delhi and the emergence of Aam Aadmi Party’
 
By Adnan Farooqui 
 
On Tuesday, 28 November at 3:45 p.m. 
 
 
The presentation analyses the emergence of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the context of systemic changes in the nature of political competition in Delhi.This is done against the back drop of Delhi’s unique constitutional position, party system in the state, reasons behind the emergence of AAP and subsequent reversals in its political fortunes.

The analysis is done through the detailed study of post-poll electoral surveys and the election results in 2013, 2014, and 2015 elections. The attempt here is also to look at the nomination procedure and campaign strategy adopted by APP gleaned through the extensive interviews of the political actors involved.

Adnan Farooqi is Assistant Professor, Department of Political Science at Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi. His academic interests are focused on electoral systems, party systems, and political parties.
