Arvind kejriwal: Delhi mayor elections

The election for the mayor, deputy mayor and six members of the Standing Committee of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) will be held on Friday, for which voting will be held at the Civic Centre from 11 am.

Shelly Oberoi and Aaley Mohammed Iqbal are in the fray for the post of mayor from Aam Aadmi Party. On the other hand, BJP’s Rekha Gupta and Kamal Bagdi are trying their luck for the Mayor and Deputy Mayor posts respectively.

The Congress has decided to keep itself out of the mayoral and deputy mayor elections. In such a situation, there is a direct contest between the BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party. The Aam Aadmi Party has the majority figure in MCD, on the basis of which it can win the mayor and deputy mayor elections too. However, the BJP has made the election interesting by fielding its candidate, but how will it gather the numbers to appoint a mayor, this has to be seen.

In the election for the post of Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Delhi, the councillors can vote for the candidate of any party as per their wish and no action can be taken against them for voting for the candidate of other party. In such a situation there is also a possibility of cross voting. It is believed that considering all these equations, BJP has entered the election despite not having the majority figure.

MCD equation

For the first time after the Municipal Corporation unification, 134 councillors of Aam Aadmi Party have been elected in the elections held in 250 wards while only 104 councillors of BJP have won. At the same time, the Congress party won only 9 seats and independents won three seats.

Two-hundred-and-fifty councillors, 7 Lok Sabha MPs of Delhi, 3 Rajya Sabha members, 14 MLAs of the Legislative Assembly will vote for the Mayor election in Delhi MCD. In this way, a total of 274 members can vote, according to which 137 votes are needed to win the mayor’s seat. Aam Aadmi Party has complete numbers game for majority whereas the BJP seems to be far behind in numbers game.

A total of 274 members take part in the voting in the Mayor election of MCD, the candidate who gets the majority will be declared the Mayor of Delhi. However, the presiding officer allows the candidates to withdraw their names even before the polling at the time of the mayoral election, so whether there will be an election for the post of mayor or not, it will be decided at the very last moment. After the election of mayor, the election of deputy mayor and permanent members will also be held.

Ever since the MCD polls were held, the BJP has been making claims of winning the mayoral elections in Delhi. Despite not having the majority figure in the MCD, political speculations are being made because of the way the BJP has fielded its candidates. The mayor is elected through a secret ballot and councillors are free to vote for any candidate, as the anti-defection law does not apply.

In such a situation, if BJP is successful in gaining confidence of some councillors of Aam Aadmi Party, then the political game will be completely overturned. In such a situation, it has to be seen whether the lotus will blossom or if the Aam Aadmi Party will succeed in making its mayor for the first time?
