New Delhi: Four candidates quit AAP
New Delhi, Oct 3: Politics is not everybody's cup of tea and four candidates from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) realised this and quit. Four seats in the AAP are lying vacant after candidates resigned as they could not handle pressure and demands of the political life, reports suggested.

The party has since then been extra cautious in selecting candidates. So far the AAP has given out 45 tickets to people who have no prior experience in politics and claims that it has not been disappointed so far.

A party official said that in case of these seats, the candidates were given sufficient time to get their work started. Once it was clear that they were unable to cope with the campaign and pressure of politics, they resigned, some of them citing personal problems.

Candidates for these vacant seats will be chosen directly by the party's political affairs committee.

Thirteen seats are vacant as of now in the Aam Aadmi Party

A party member claimed that out of the 45 volunteers who were given tickets, only four did not manage to make a mark. But the remaining candidates were doing extremely well. There are candidates like Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai, who had earned the party's appreciation and are conducting remarkable campaigns inspite of no prior political experience.

Apart from these four, nine other seats remain vacant, for which candidates have not been announced yet. Harish Tiwari's name was announced as candidate from Rithala on Wednesday.

According to reports, the party will require another two to three weeks to declare all its candidates.
