The following content will be added: "Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) -- Formed on 26 November 2012, following the 2011 anti-corruption movement.

In the year after its formation, AAP emerged as the second largest party in the Delhi Legislative Assembly election. It formed a government with the support of Indian National Congress (INC). It also emerged as the third front in the politics of Gujarat after the 2022 Gujarat Legislative Assembly election. Presently, AAP formed governments in Punjab and Delhi.
