  1. The Common Man Party Keeps its First Promise in Delhi

    The Aam Aadmi Party, or Common Man Party, staged a shocking election showing against the juggernauts of Indian politics, the dynastic Congress party and right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party. In the first-ever elections contested by the year-old party, the AAP took 28 out of 70 seats in the Assembly of New Delhi, India’s capital. The party has already delivered on an election promise to provide 700 liters of free water daily to households with a functional meter. Will the move open the floodgates to further change as national parliamentary elections inch closer in 2014?
