MCD elections: AAP wins 132, leads in 2, BJP secures 104 while Congress manages 9

AAP wins the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections comfortably.

On Wednesday (December 7), the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) have been fighting neck and neck as both parties taking the lead every few minutes. However, now it seems we have a clear winner in Aam Aadmi Party in the local body polls in national capital.

As per latest official ECI data, AAP has won 132 seats and is leading in 2 seats while BJP has won 104 seats.

The Congress on the other end has managed to get 9 seats while independent candidates have won 3 seats each.

Notably, the Exit Polls had predicted a landslide victory for the Aam Aadmi Party saying that the AAP will breach BJP’s 15-year-old citadel. Various exit polls had predicted that the AAP will manage to win 150+ seats.

In the 2017 MCD elections, AAP was a distant second winning only 48 seats while BJP won 181 seats.

In the exit polls for the 2022 MCD elections, various media channels predicted victory for the Aam Aadmi Party on 150+ seats.

According to an exit poll conducted by Aaj Tak, the AAP may win 149-171 wards.

According to another exit poll conducted by Times Now, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s party received between 146 and 156 wards with BJP winning just 84-94 seats.

In the closely watched polls held on December 4, Delhi recorded a voter turnout of 50.48 percent. The election was seen as a three-way race between an emerging competitor AAP, an assured BJP, and a hopeful yet nowhere in the fight, Congress. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has 250 wards, and 1,349 candidates are running in this election. Taking everyone to surprise BJP proving the exit polls wrong is giving a tough fight to AAP. It will thus be too early to predict which party will emerge victorious.
