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.

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.
