Counting of votes took place on Tuesday from 8 a.m. for the Delhi Assembly polls, a tripartite contest between the ruling Aam Aadmi Party, BJP and Congress. Even before the final results are out, the three parties were claiming their respective win.

But AAP in another landslide victory swept the capital by bagging 62 of the 70 seats and the BJP won 8, while the Congress drew another blank.

Arvind Kejriwal will take oath as the Delhi Chief Minister for the third straight time on February 16 (Sunday) at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan. He was elected unopposed as the leader of the legislative party during a meeting held at his residence with all 62 MLAs on Wednesday.

Exit polls had projected Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP comfortably retaining power in Delhi for the third consecutive term.

On February 8 polling, the voter turnout was 62.59%. 

Voting was done peacefully and very few cases of disturbances in VoVM and VVPAT were observed at polling stations.

Meanwhile, all political parties raised with great gusto the issue of protest movements against the CAA, NRC and NPR in Shaheen Bagh and Jamia during election campaigning.

In the last election, the AAP had won 67 out of 70 seats. While the BJP had won three seats, the Congress could not even open its account.
