Activist-turned-politicians Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan will announce the name and constitution of their political outfit on Saturday, for which a meeting is underway in the national capital. The social crusader said, "Nearly 300-350 common people will come together to discuss on issues like the name of the party which will be non-dynastic in nature."

While inviting the masses to the November 26 meeting at Jantar Mantar on twitter, Kejriwal announced that all those who become members on that day would be treated as founding members.

Stating that a large number of people had come forward saying they wanted to become the founding members, the social crusader tweeted:

"Main hoon Aam aadmi. Main loonga swaraj"

"Main hoon Aam Aurat. Main door karungi mehngai."

"Main hoon Aam Aadmi. Main banaoonga Jan Lokpal."

 

This will be the first meeting of its national council and the members are expected to ratify the name and elect a 30-member national executive. It will be the highest decision-making body for the party. The party will be formally launched on November 26 at Jantar Mantar.

Kejriwal and others plan to submit their paperwork, including a videotape of Saturday's meeting, 300 affidavits, and other formalities within the next week to the Election Commission for registration of the party's name

However, it could take four-five months before the party is formally registered in their name and a symbol is allotted

Earlier, Kejriwal had announced that he would give up the India Against Corruption (IAC) tag once the party was launched. "Work on the party's constitution is complete, and it will be formally adopted on November 26. But we will announce and discuss this and other issues with our colleagues across the country tomorrow," Kejriwal said.
