The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will not give tickets to any incumbent legislator for the Lok Sabha elections, former Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said Wednesday.

"We will not give ticket to any legislator for the Lok Sabha elections," Kejriwal told the media.

He, however, did not make it clear whether he was speaking about legislators of other parties or Independents, including from Delhi.

The AAP made its debut with 28 seats in the Delhi assembly elections. It ran the city government for 49 days with outside support of the Congress, but later the government resigned on the issue of Jan Lokpal bill.

The party is all set for the Lok Sabha polls and has announced a list of 20 candidates.
