    The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday released the full list of 70 candidates for the upcoming Delhi Assembly election, in which the Arvind Kejriwal-led party will seek a second successive term.

    Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal set to contest the polls from the New Delhi seat and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia is contesting from the Patparganj seat.

    After the list was released, Kejriwal tweeted:

    According to the list released by the party’s Political Affairs Committee, AAP leader Atishi will contest from the Kalkaji constituency, while another party leader Dilip Pandey will contest the Timarpur seat. Both had unsuccessfully contested the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

    Additionally, Satyendra Jain will contest from Shakur Basti, Jarnail Singh from Tilak Nagar, SK Bagga from Krishna Nagar, and Jitendra Tomar from Tri Nagar seats.

    Reports also said that while AAP has fielded sitting MLAs in 46 of the 67 seats it had won in the 2015 polls, at least 15 incumbent legislators have been denied a ticket. Meanwhile, new faces have been given a ticket for six seats.

    Delhi will go to polls on 8 February and the counting of votes will take place on 11 February. The Model Code of Conduct is in place.

    Soon after the poll dates were announced by Chief Election Commissioner Sunil Arora on 6 January, Kejriwal said that the 2020 Assembly election will be based on “development”

    A renewed focus on cleanliness, including solid waste management, getting rid of landfills, and cleaning the Yamuna along with ways to provide drinking water, are issues that are likely to be added to the AAP manifesto.
