The Aam Aadmi Party is likely to contest all the 25 Lok Sabha seats in Rajasthan in upcoming polls but if a suitable candidate is not available for a seat, it will opt out of the race from that constituency.

The party will most probably field candidates in all the 25 seats up for grabs in Rajasthan, AAP's state unit secretary Rakesh Pareek told reporters here today.

Nearly 200 applications have been received so far from prospective candidates for contesting the parliamentary polls in the state, he said.

These will be sent to the five-member Political Affairs Committee for screening, Pareek said.

"If PAC does not find a suitable candidate for a seat, the party will not contest from that constituency," he said.

So far, the party has enrolled over 1.35 lakh members in 27 out of 33 districts in the state, Pareek said.

An eight-member committee has also been constituted for electioneering, he said.
