India’s ‘common man party’ set to take power in Delhi

2013-12-23 13:32

New Delhi – The leader of India’s new “common man party” has struck a deal to become Delhi’s chief minister, promising to clean up politics after a stunning electoral debut that has shaken up the country’s two main parties.

The Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the country’s main opposition party, won the largest number of seats in the Delhi assembly, but fell short of a majority. The AAP, born out of the anti-graft movement that swept India two years ago, took second place, pushing the incumbent Congress to the third spot.
