While the AAP was unable to put on an impressive show throughout the country, the bright spot to the AAP was 12.9-per percent vote share and five seat in the House and the fact that it emerged as an international party (six percent of the vote for at-least four states: Delhi, Punjab, Goa and Gujarat).
