Defeated presidential candidate Purno A. Sangma will float the National People's Party (NPP) here in Meghalaya Friday, an aide said Thursday.

"The NPP will be led by Sangma," the aide told IANS. "NPP will be tribal-centric but will be open to all."

Its symbol will be a book. The party will soon seek recognition from the Election Commission.

According to the aide, the new party will draw most of its members from the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), his former party.
