MCD Election Result Updates
Updates on MCD Election Results: BJP, which has been in MCD for three consecutive terms since 2007, is trying to lose control of the civic body to AAP.
The MCD was reunified earlier this year and this is the first election since then. Exit polls predict that AAP can easily take over MCD from BJP. Despite winning three consecutive municipal elections in the city since 2007, the BJP is expected to remain a distant second. In contrast, the Congress is projected to get only a small number of seats.
Of the 1.45 crore eligible voters who went to the polls on December 4, only 50.48% voted, i.e. around 73 lakh. According to data provided by the Delhi_State_Election_Commission, the affluent areas of south Delhi recorded the lowest voter turnout in the municipal elections. In 2020, the highest voter turnout was in North East Delhi and rural areas, which faced riots.
AAP is trying to oust the BJP from the control of MCD in Delhi and the counting of votes is currently underway. For recent updates, check here:
