The increasing nepotism and corruptibility of the present-day political
elite makes them uninspiring, while the lack of transparency and the
opportunism of the older parties have also contributed to distancing them
from the people. This is a major crisis of democracy and it has created
space for the rise of new leaders with integrity and of party organizations
with commitment beyond their vote bank.

Aam Admi Party (The Common People's Party), the new party in India, has the
prospect of widening, deepening and strengthening the movement against
corruption by “walking on two legs” – active citizenship-based multilayered
initiatives for basic reforms and voter-oriented political organization for
electoral intervention.  Prof. Anand Kumar will address the ideas involved
in creating this new political formation.
