Political parties in India

The Election Commission is reviewed the status of political parties. Based on their performance in the last two elections, the poll panel issued notices to three political parties – the CPI, the NCP and the TMC. All three had been asked them to explain why their national party status should not be revoked. According to The Election Symbols (Reservation and Allotment) Order, 1968, a political party can be recognised as a national party if it fulfills certain conditions.
