The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Wednesday announced lawyer-turned-politician Amit Palekar as its chief ministerial face for the next month’s Assembly elections in Goa.

The 46-year-old lawyer had recently joined AAP and is the party’s candidate from the St Cruz Assembly constituency, which is currently represented by the BJP.

His name was announced by AAP national convener and Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal in Panaji. “Goa wants a change and AAP has been getting a tremendous response in the coastal state. People are impressed with the Delhi model of governance,” he said. Kejriwal said this time the party had given ticket to fresh faces. Palekar belongs to the Bhandari community. —
