Delhi election: Counting begins, AAP Ahead of BJP in over 50 seats

According to the Election Commission, the ruling AAP is leading in 63 Seats while the BJP ahead in 7 Seats. Situated in North West Delhi district, the constituency saw a high-profile contest in the 2015 polls, when AAP's Sandeep Kumar earned the moniker of "giant killer" by defeating veretan Congress leader Jai Kishan by a margin of 56 percent votes. Former Delhi minister Haroon Yusuf of the Congress finished a distant third with 4,797 votes and 4.73% vote share.

Political pundits have also proclaimed that the Delhi Assembly election results will have a telling effect on the next Lok Sabha elections scheduled for 2024.

The counting began at 8 am and will be held in multiple rounds, Delhi Chief Electoral Officer (CEO) Ranbir Singh said.

Over 1.47 crore people were eligible to vote in the Delhi polls, including 2.33 lakh in the age group of 18-19.

Kapil Mishra and Alka Lamba, the rebel AAP MLAs, who were disqualified from the Kejriwal-led party on grounds of defection, and joined BJP and Congress respectively, were trailing from Model Town and Chandni Chowk constituencies.
