New Delhi, July 30 (ANI): The Election Commission on Friday derecognised national party status to five parties following their poll performance, which included the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD), Janata Dal-United (JD-U) and the Samajwadi party.

The other parties to lose national status are Pattali Makkal Katchi (PMK) and Arunachal Congress.
