In a post on X, Mann said, "In the next five days, the candidates for the remaining five Lok Sabha seats will be announced by the AAP." AAP is yet to announce its candidates from Ferozepur, Gurdaspur, Hoshiarpur, Ludhiana and Anandpur Sahib.

AAP was the first one among all political parties in the state that announced the list of candidates for the Lok Sabha polls.

In its first list of candidates, the AAP fielded five cabinet ministers; Kuldeep Singh Dhaliwal from Amritsar, Laljit Singh Bhullar from Khadoor Sahib, Gurmeet Singh Khudian from Bathinda, Gurmeet Singh Meet Hayer from Sangrur and Dr Balbir Singh from Patiala.

Sitting Jalandhar MP Sushil Rinku has been named as the party's candidate again from the seat.

Gurpreet Singh GP has been fielded from Fatehgarh Sahib seat and actor-singer Karamjeet Anmol is the party candidate from Faridkot seat.

The AAP, which is a constituent of the opposition INDIA bloc, is contesting the parliamentary polls on its own in Punjab.
