CHENNAI: Actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan on Sunday thanked the Election Commission of India for allotting his party Makkal Needhi Maiam (MNM) the battery torch symbol, calling it "appropriate" and in keeping with the party's vision.

"MNM thanks the Election Commision for granting us the 'Battery Torch' symbol for the forthcoming elections. So appropriate. MNM will endeavour to be the 'Torch-Bearer' for a new era in TN and Indian politics," Haasan said in a tweet.

Haasan had launched his political party MNM (People's Centre for Justice) last year and will contest the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

Last month speaking to reporters here, he said that the party will release the names of Lok Sabha candidates in phases and that youth will get preference in the selections.
