The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Tuesday announced its 22 candidates for the upcoming Gujarat Assembly election in the eighth list, bringing a total of 108 candidates announced so far.

AAP Gujarat President Gopal Italia announced the candidates at a press conference in Botad. Of the 22 assembly seats declared by the AAP as its candidate, 15 seats were won by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in 2017, and the rest by Congress. Of these, four seats are reserved for the Scheduled Tribe, three of which are in Valsad district and one in Udepur’s Chhota district.

Chandrika Solanki has been demoted from the Scheduled Caste reserve seat in the Vadodara municipal constituency. Italy described her as “a revolutionary woman who has fought and raised her voice for the struggle of ASHA workers, Anganwadi workers and for the women of Gujarat”.
