Delhi is poised to hold elections after an arguably successful 5 years tenure of Aam Aadami Party (AAP) [translates to "Common Man Party"] led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Current tenure expires on 22 Feb 2020. It shall hold elections on 70 seats.
With this announcement, Model Code of Conduct (MCC) of elections is immediately effective in National Capital of Delhi.
Also, as per MCC, even in National Budget scheduled in this quarter, not state specific things should be announced which can effect elections in any way
Moreover, old, physically challenged people can register for postal ballets as well as per EIC.
In last elections in Delhi (2015) AAP party had the clean sweep against BJP and Congress where Congress did not even get a single seat whereas BJP got only 3 seat out of 70 seats.
And when it comes to vote share, following were the figures:
- AAP: 54.3%
- BJP: 32.3%
- INC: 9.7%
Total voting turnout in 2015 was 67.47% which was 1.45% more than the previous one 2013. It should be noted that in 2013 AAP made a govt. in collaboration with INC (Indian National Congress) but due to differences in opinion, AAP decided to dissolve and thereby Delhi going under Governor Rule until next elections of 2015 where AAP won 67 out of 70 seats.
