Goa polls: AAP to declare 1st list of candidates in September

Panaji, Aug 9: AAP will announce its first list of candidates for Goa Assembly polls in September. "The first set of eight to ten candidates will be announced in the first or second week of September," party's Goa unit spokesman Rupesh Shinkre said.

"In certain constituencies, people have already recommended names of candidates. The volunteers and people at large have accepted them," he said.


"A proper procedure is followed for selecting candidates. The main criteria is that he or she should be honest, secular and not have criminal background," the AAP leader said.

AAP had earlier said it will contest all the 40 seats in the state.

Party's National Convenor Arvind Kejriwal will be on a two-day visit to Goa starting August 20 during which he will interact with mining-affected people, tribals and women groups.
