Kochi: The party’s state election in-charge Vinod Mathew Wilson on Saturday said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will bring in new faces and carry out organizational reforms in Kerala after the local body polls.

“AAP has decided to contest in three panchayat wards and one block panchayat ward in Kerala in the upcoming local body bypolls. AAP is contesting against the immoral politics of the CPI(M) in Kerala. We will perform well in these seats and open an account in Kerala,” the AAP leader told media persons.

Wilson said, “AAP National Committee has decided to find new faces who can influence Kerala and bring them to the leadership of the party in Kerala.” He said such names will be announced in the coming time.

Attacking the Congress, the AAP leader said the main opposition party in Kerala was performing dismally.

Wilson said that AAP’s new organizational structure will be implemented soon in Kerala. He said the party has already organized protests across Kerala, including the Raj Bhavan march, against the Adani issue and budget-related issues.

AAP is contesting from Ozhakkanad Ward of Erumeli Grama Panchayat, Thalikkulam Block Panchayat of Thrissur, Ward 11 of Pothanikad Grama Panchayat and Ward 5 of Vilakudi Grama Panchayat. Voting will take place on 28 February and counting will take place on 1 March.

It is noteworthy that after its electoral success in Punjab last year, AAP is seeking expansion in other states to strengthen its foothold. The party contested elections in states like Goa, Himachal Pradesh, and Gujarat last year.
