The Vote counting for the MCD polls has commenced and the Aam Aadmi Party is eyeing to unseat the 15-year-long incumbency of BJP in the Delhi MCD elections. The civic body election were held on 4 December. In the early trends, the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP is winning in 100 seats, whereas its counterpart BJP is leading in 84 seats.

The Aam Aadmi Party, which has been in power in Delhi since 2015, looks set to emerge victorious in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections. The BJP, which has been holding the MCD for quite a while, looks like it will come second while the Congress will return single figures in the elections held to the city’s 250 wards.


An Aaj Tak exit poll said the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP is expected to win on 160 seats or thereabouts. The Times Now exit poll predicted a similar end for the Aam Aadmi Party, projecting it winning some 150 wards.

The Aaj Tak exit poll predicts BJP winning 69-91 wards and on the other hand, Times Now exit poll predicts the BJP will gain power in 84-94 wards.


The returns for the Congress seem below par as mentioned earlier. The voter turnout for the municipal polls was just 50 per cent, the elections were held on December 4. It needs to be remembered that this is a municipal election and not a high-stakes Assembly election unlike the one in Gujarat, the results for which will be out on Thursday, December 8, along with results for Himachal Pradesh.

Though it may have been a civic poll, the BJP and the AAP had put forward their whole machinery to win.

Data from the State Election Commission showed that there were 1,45,05,358 registered voters in Delhi overall, of which 78,93,418 were men, 66,10,879 were women, and 1,061 transgenders.


This is the first civic election after delimitation. From 2012 to 2022, Delhi had 272 wards and three corporations—North Delhi Municipal Corporation, South Delhi Municipal Corporation and the East Delhi Municipal Corporation—which were later reunified into a single MCD, which came back into being on May 22 this year. The North Delhi body is not to be confused with the New Delhi Municipal Council which is the civic body for what remains Lutyens’ Delhi.

The campaign promises the BJP had put forward, included waiver of property tax dues of 12 years among other things. This will be a fillip for the AAP since the Delhi government has been at the mercy of the MCD following the sweeper wage row which had led to the piling up of garbage all across the Capital.

Delhi MCD result 2022

The Aam Aadmi Party’s victory in the elections to the Municipal Corporation of Delhi was a foregone conclusion even before the ballots were opened for counting on December 7, Wednesday. Dislodging the BJP from the municipal corporation was the one step for AAP to fulfil its state-wide dreams, it seems to have worked in favour of the newest party in town with an effective grassroots campaign. The day will also go down as one on which AAP will be stuck with the Delhi-party pejorative and see its dreams of spreading across the country come to a full-stop, at least for now.

The 250 wards of Delhi have been a BJP responsibility for some 15 years, even with and after the trifurcation. By freeing itself of the municipality, the BJP has more to gain from being dismissed as a Delhi baniya party now that it has other sources of funding. Conversely, the AAP will gain the money the MCD brings much like the Shiv Sena stronghold on the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation which powers that party.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has more responsibilities ahead of him to make Delhi a sparkling city, away from the trauma of unattended garbage over sweeper salary woes under the BJP-ruled MCD. The AAP will also get to make affordable healthcare via mohalla clinics and extend its education agenda across MCD run schools, apart from the government schools. The Delhi citizen will be the gainer even if she/he overlooked the tall promises of the BJP willing to waive property tax dues of some 12 years etc.

MCD election 2022: AAP ready with victory posters and balloons but reality bites on counting day

An investment for better civic amenities has been the result in this MCD election. It also comes a day ahead of the results of the elections to the Gujarat Assembly and the Himachal Pradesh Assembly. Exit polls have not been kind to the AAP given its no-holds-barred campaign in Gujarat. That may take time but for now, Kejriwal and his party will be complete masters of Delhi even its municipal body. The slogan “MCD mein bhi Kejriwal” seems to have worked bringing much more responsibility onto the shoulders of the Delhi CM.

The whittling away of BJP strongholds by AAP councillors will come full circle when the 2024 Lok Sabha elections are here. The BJP will have a tough task on hand convincing its voters of the civic effort and instead will have to revert to repurposing the 2014 Modi campaign yet again. Despite the BJP itself offering the property tax dues waiver, the party had been on the frontfoot against electoral promises in a bit to curb the AAP’s reach on water and power. Voter turnout for the MCD poll was about 50 per cent on a Sunday, the Delhi voter who voted is loud and clear: Revdis welcome in India’s capital!
