Delhi State Commission has geared up for the counting of votes at 250 wards, the polls for which were held in the national capital on December 4 with nearly 50 per cent voter turnout. A total of 1,349 candidates contested in the MCD polls.

Multiple exit polls have predicted that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP will sweep Delhi, while BJP will be a distant second, with only getting a handful of seats. 

Delhi SEC has set up 42 counting centres across the capital while 68 Observers have been deployed by the Commission.

MCD is one of the largest municipal bodies in the world and caters to over 11 million residents. It runs primary schools, dispensaries, waste management, roads, and sanitation in the capital of India. The MCD polls are also unique because it is a junction where the central government and the state government compete with each other.

The national capital witnessed high-decibel campaigning by AAP and BJP which made top leaders, including Union ministers, chief ministers of BJP-ruled states and MPs hit the streets for door-to-door campaigning and meetings to garner public support.

If AAP sweeps the MCD polls, be for the first time in the last 15 years that the BJP will not control the MCD. The BJP has governed the civic body in Delhi since 2007.
