According to the latest report in the Delhi MCD elections, the ruling BJP won 91 seats and the AAP won 111. The final outcome is still unknown.

All eyes are now on the MCD results today. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is set to break the jinx of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in MCD. The trend has been going in favour of AAP. Arivind Kejriwal’s AAP is set to overthrow the BJP’s 15-year rule in MCD. The picture is clear: the people of Dellhi don’t have much interest in politics of hatred; they vote for better education, health, electricity, cleanliness, and infrastructure.

AAP is cruising nicely to cross the line in MCD. On Sunday, December 4, the MCD election was held to elect 250 members. An exit poll made it clear that AAP is set to topple the saffron party this time. But credit should be given to the BJP, as the party gave a tough fight to the AAP and bagged more seats as per expectations. The voters of the national capital once again rejected the Congress party.

Victory in 126 seats is the magical figure for anyone attempting to gain control of MCD.

Data shared by the Delhi Election Commission reveals the lowest voter turnout in the municipal polls. Rural pockets and parts of Northeast Delhi, where riots took place in 2020, saw the highest polling percentages.
