Election Symbol

The Election Commission of India has recognized AIMEP as a national political party, allotting “Diamond” as its election symbol. Dr Nowhera Shaik has fought a long battle to get the Diamond as the election symbol of the MEP.  Symbols are used by parties in their campaigning and printed on ballot papers where a voter must make a mark to vote for the associated party. One of the main purposes to get diamonds is to facilitate voting by illiterate people, who cannot read candidates’ names on ballot papers. The diamond has its own identity and shines like a star thus whoever associated or voted for the MEP his or her future would also shine like a diamond.
