MCD elections will be held on Sunday. A bench of Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and AS Oka dismissed a petition from the National Youth Party asking for a stay of the elections, observing that the passage of time had rendered the appeal infructuous.

The petition questioned the MCD’s decision to reduce the number of wards from 272 to 250. The party previously tried unsuccessfully on November 9 to convince the Delhi High Court to get a stay on the polls.

Even though the HC had given notice regarding the petition, it decided not to order a stay on the elections because the state electoral commission had already begun the MCD election process.

The petition questioned the Delhi Municipal Corporation (Amendment) Act 2022, which changed the total number of wards in the national capital from the existing 272 to 250. After the amendment, the three municipal bodies—North, South, and East—were merged into one.
